Yellow gold, clear and brilliant in appearance. Freshness marked by the distinctive aromas of Viognier; white flowers, apricot, acacia and white peach. The palate is fruity with plenty of richness and body. A well-rounded wine with elegance, strength and balance. Pair with various appetizers, fish, and Asian cuisine.

Baked apple, cardamom and smoke introduce this full-bodied, lusciously waxen white. It's a rippling, textural wine that finishes on an elegantly salty tang. Enjoy now-2023.

Limpid, glistening gold. Nectarine, pear and Meyer lemon take on a fennel nuance as the wine opens up. Juicy and focused on the palate, offering ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of chalky minerality. Expands and deepens on the long, silky finish, leaving behind a subtle floral quality.

The 2017 Côtes du Rhône Blanc has lots of Grenache Blanc as well as other permitted varieties. Notes of white flowers, citrus, and honeysuckle all emerge from this medium-bodied, vibrant white that has good acidity and a clean finish. As usual, it over-delivers.

The 2017 Cotes du Rhone Blanc includes a majority of Viognier (as usual), supported by 15% to 20% Roussanne and bit of other Rhône varieties. It's a bold mouthful of apricot, pineapple and citrus, with a slightly floral nose. Medium to full-bodied, it's plump and round in the mouth, followed by a fresh, slightly briny finish. Drink it over the next couple of years.

Apricot, nectarine and green plum notes hold sway here, with flashes of fennel and star fruit on the finish. Ripe and rounded, but stays fresh in feel. Viognier, Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Grenache Blanc. Drink now. 50,000 cases made, 15,000 cases imported.
