This comes from the same province in southern France as the rosé and is made from a blend of 60% grenache, 20% marsanne and 20% roussanne. I assume it’s a “grenache blanc” since it’s a colorless wine, although the mark only specifies it as “grenache.” And you may recall from another recent review, marsanne and roussanne are a link of my favorite colorless varieties. The marsanne and roussane add some really fascinating herbaceous and mineral characteristics to this wine, while the grenache gives it a excellent fruit base.
The aromas from this wine are a delightful blend of honeydew melon, lime, straw and wet stones. On the palate, it serves up lime and mineral flavors with moderate concentration. This wine has a set alight body with delicate flavors
