2018 Passion Cuvée
Blend of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, and Roussanne -
Straight-away this beautiful blend emits strong floral aromas along with soft honey notes, a dose of mandarin citrus, and just an aura of dusty earthiness. The palate has a round body, soft acidity, and a subtle, an almost teasing, texture that just gently touches the top of the tongue. The initial dominant flavors are reminiscent of a freshly baked stone fruit gaellette: mango, yellow peaches, notes of agave nectar, all enveloped in a wheat-y, nutty pastry crust. But take your time with the wine and find secondary characteristics that speak of light-petaled flowers like chamomile and jasmine. Well-rounded, well-balanced, and intriguing to say the least—you'll find yourself sipping this wine again and again just to figure it out... ~ Stacy Briscoe
