The quality of this cuvée has soared over the past decade, and the 2018 Côtes du Rhône Blanc is another terrific vintage. Tasting like a mini Condrieu with its floral, orange blossom, and honeysuckle aromas and flavors, it’s medium-bodied, fresh, and lively on the palate, with an attractive mix of richness and freshness. Drink it over the coming year or two.

More than half Viognier, with the balance rounded out by Roussanne, Bourboulenc and just 2% Grenache Blanc, the 2018 Cotes du Rhone Blanc is rich and tropical. It's full-bodied, silky and mouth coating, a charming white to drink over the next couple of years.
"A white wine which will seduce thanks to the blend of grape varieties and its qualities which are as numerous as its famous red cousin’s! Connoisseurs will recognise the dominant presence of Viognier.
