From: Westport, CT
2016 Chateau Fontareche VV
60% Roussanne and 40% White Grenache
My first bottle from a case bought through Grapes TWC in White Plains NY...for $10/btl.
Nose is light, green apple, lemon, wet rocks
These grapes produce a wonderful, mouth coating texture that reminds me of a Ermitage L'Oree with a bit of a brighter edge to it.
Clearly not for Chard lovers.
Taste is a bit of citrus, under ripe pear (not sweet), mineral.
Finish has a bit of grip to it that's not exactly acidic...trying to decided if it adds or detracts.
