Les Deux Rives Corbières Blanc

french wine  %tages Les Deux Rives Corbières BlancLast week we reviewed the Les Deux Rives Corbières Rosé, and staying with the “summer sippers with Rhone varietals” theme we’re checking out the colorless wine from this brand, Les Deux Rives Corbières Blanc.
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 http://1000-facts-about-wine.com and soft acidity.  I would have liked a touch more acidity, but it’s dry enough that the acidity is balanced with the sweetness — or lack thereof.  It finishes with mineral and a hint of lemon.  Well chilled, this would be a nice sipper on a hot summer day.
