Saturday, September 22, 2018 - Having been underwhelmed in the past by most Rhone whites, including from some famous estates like Chave and Beaucastel, I was surprised but delighted to find absolutely delicious this Laudun from a cocktail of Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache blanc, Viognier and Roussanne. Nose was a fragrant medley of white fruit like peach and apricot with ginger and exotic spices plus a touch of minerals. The palate, at most medium bodied, followed through on the aromas with a liveliness contributed by fresh acidity as well as a certain underlying roundness and slightly saline backbone. This domaine was not previously on my radar screen but definitely is now. Not for ageing, I think, but good+ right now.
