It?s a wonder white wine production in this region is so dramatically overshadowed by red, when this is what can be achieved! This glorious Rh?ne Blanc has been blended from no less than five principle Rh?ne varieties, sourced from various parts of the appellation with different terroirs; including soils with river stones on the surface, zaffer, and deep clay.
The higher proportion of viognier in the blend offers notes of stone fruit while the other varieties offer depth and classic Rh?ne minerality. A wine to dine with and savour, produced by one of the quality lead cooperatives in this highly regarded Southern Rh?ne Cru.
