The 2017 Patelin de Tablas Blanc is intensely Rhone-like on the nose, with notes of honeysuckle, spiced pear, nectarine, spearmint, and sweet spice. In the mouth, it's lush but vibrant with peach pit, honeycrisp apple, and orange zest flavors, and a saline mid-palate. Bright acidity softens into creamy richness on the finish, leaving lingering flavors of sweet spice. Drink now and for the next 2-3 years. Pair with seafood cooked with garlic and white wine. Green salads with avocado and citrus dressing. Lemon chicken. Scallops. Light-fleshed fish with tropical salsa.

The 2017 Patelin de Tablas Blanc wafts from the glass with notes of rose water, preserved citrus and Provence herbs. On the palate, it's medium-bodied and flavorful, with succulent acids, a satiny texture and a pure finish. The 2017 is a blend of 44% Grenache Blanc, 29% Viognier, 12% Roussanne, 12% Marsanne and 3% Clairette Blanche.

Rounded aromas of lemon cream and banana meet with a touch of chalk and a crushed rock minerality on the nose of this blend of 44% Grenache Blanc, 29% Viognier, 12% Marsanne, 12% Roussanne and 3% Clairette Blanche. There is a compelling tension to the palate, giving structure to the tropical guava and lime-spray flavors.
