Côtes du Rhône Blanc "Vin Gourmand" 2016 - Dauvergne Ranvier


A very very fruity and floral white, coming from its high proportion of the Viognier grape (80%). Strong aromas of peach, melon and white flowers with a long silky finish. If you do like uncommon white wines with a lot of fruitiness on the nose and the palate, this bottle is a must to discover.

What experts say

86/100 "The Côtes du Rhône Vin Gourmand Blanc (Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Marsanne) is a medium-bodied, supple, tangy effort that gives up pretty apricot flowers and peach on the nose. Drink it over the coming year." (previous vintage)

  
Wine-Spectator.jpg

88/100 "A high-pitched style, with verbena and honeysuckle notes leading the way for crisp yellow apple, melon rind and white peach flavors. Shows a pleasant mineral vibrancy on the finish. Drink now." (previous vintage)

Wine-Enthusiast.jpg

87/100  "Pear, melon and anise aromas lead the way, followed on the palate by a broad, soft mouthfeel and flavors that add peppery spice on the long finish." (previous vintage)
