The 2019 Ventoux Terrasses Blanc is the same blend as the 2018: 40% Viognier, 20% Roussanne, 20% Clairette and 20% Grenache Blanc, all vinified and matured in stainless steel. On the nose, it's spicy and floral, with some melon-like fruit, while the medium-bodied palate is silky-textured, fresh and clean, with mouthwatering pineapple notes on finish.
"For many years we sold an easy-going Viognier from Chateau Pesquie but when additional plantings of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, and Roussanne became available we worked with the Chaudière family to create a Terrasses Blanc to complement the Rouge and Rosé that have been popular staples in the US market for over twenty years. Fermented and aged entirely in tank, the classic floral and pit fruit flavors and aromas of the Viognier are tempered by the crispness of Clairette and the creamy weight of Roussanne and Grenache Blanc."
