Rhone white blend of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Viognier and Bourbelenc. Medium-deep brass color. Medium-intensity nose of bruised apple and citrus, a touch of oxidization. Dry and austere on the palate with some fruit pit bitterness. This vintage was unfortunately past it when tasted, but a younger vintage would score higher and make a good, versatile food wine. It will staying discreetly in the background and let the food take centre stage.
