August 29, 2014 - A lovely approachable example of a Rhone white. Viognier very much to the fore in the blend. Enough body to be a good aperitif wine or paired with food. A bit too fruity for some fish dishes though.

August 2, 2014 - Très bon, nez timide mais une bouche très belle, belle rondeur, belle acidité, amertume contenue, longueur moyenne, rétro de fruits jaunes et blancs, quelques notes exotiques, minérales et végétales. Si nous en avions 1 autre, nous lui donnerions encore 1 ou 2 ans.

June 6, 2014 - This is kind of the "adult" in the white wine world. About 60% Viognier, the nose has a honeyed floral approach and palate has a creamy richness. There is an awesome nuttiness from the Roussane and Marsanne. Full and rich in the mouth, almost full bodied. The fruit is peach and pear with apricot and honey and just enough citrus. Superb balance. More nuttiness on a nicely integrated mature finish.

March 17, 2014 - Another nice showing for this wine, which seems to age very nicely. Medium straw color. Peach, apricot and scents of honey on the nose. Medium to full-bodied with rich fruit, noticeable alcohol, medium but sufficient acidity and a medium to long aftertaste. Still good potential for further aging. Great value and consisitency.
