‘La Fleur Solitaire’, Côtes du Rhône Blanc

£11.25

Proper white Côtes du Rhône; fresh, medium-bodied, vinous

From selected vineyards in the southern Rhône, each parcel is picked separately in the cooler early daylight hours for gentle pressing that same morning and then fermented at a low temperature. To a base of Grenache Blanc, Viognier is blended in along with Roussanne. Around a third of the wine is matured for 6 months in French oak barrels to add complexity and creaminess.

The nose is pretty and delicate, with a waft of fennel tops and hints of hedgerow flowers. The flavours are nuanced and refined rather than overt. Careful use of oak adds texture and structure without masking the freshness of this very drinkable white.
