Côtes du Rhône Blanc "Secret de Famille" 2015 - Paul Jaboulet Aîné


This white Côtes du Rhône is a great value wine for any aperitif or meal. It is made of a subtle blend of various local grapes providing concentrated flavours of white fruit and flowers, while remaining crisp and fresh. A short stay in oak barrels brings in a toasted hint for a greater personality. An admirable wine, especially for this price range.

Experts LogoWhat experts say

88/100 "The juicy, racy styled 2015 Cotes du Rhone Blanc is another terrific value from a vintage that’s packed with values. Crisp peach, under-ripe pineapple, honeysuckle and a touch of tangerine all emerge from this medium-bodied, fresh and crisp white that doesn’t lack for intensity or length. Drink it over the coming year."

DWWA 2016 Bronze.jpg

Bronze Medal at Decanter World Wine Awards 2016 "A solid and fleshy wine with a white flower nose and weighty stone fruits and flint on the palate. The finish is savoury with lingering green peach characters."

87/100 "Bright honeysuckle, jasmine and white peach aromas lead the way, followed by a yellow apple note on the open-knit finish. Drink now. "
