Gaillac Blanc Sec "Renaissance" 2014 - Domaine Rotier


This dry white Gaillac is less fresh than the dry Jurançon but offering more fruit and flowers on the palate. Multiple flavours of peach, pear and pineapple with a touch of vanilla on the finish. 10% of the wine is aged in oak barrel to develop its structure and add complexity. A nice opportunity to discover what a solid white Gaillac can show.

What experts say  
  92/100 "A wood-aged wine, this blend of Loin de l'Oeil and Sauvignon Blanc is rich and lightly toasty. There are also fine yellow fruit and honeyed flavors that give the wine a ripe complexity and that leave with crisp acidity. It's is ready to drink now and until 2022."  
  
 
15/20 "This cuvée clearly shows a floral and vegetal personality, with notes of licorice, lime and cooked rhubarb. Round palate with volume, a low acidity and a peppery finish." (Previous vintage)
