“The palate is bright and fresh with focused mineral driving the evolution of white peach and florals into supple melon and pure lively fresh. Between the 2011, 2012 and 2013 vintages, this is the finest.” -Matt Coyne, Inglenook Wine Educator Tasting Notes Our 2013 Blancaneaux bestows a provocative fragrance of pears, honey and white flowers. Complex and well-balanced, there is a voluminous mouthfeel that’s offset by crisp natural acidity. This year’s rendition reveals subtler side of Viognier, with less tropical notes or apricot than in the 2012 vintage. Here, Roussanne and Marsanne nuances are more prevalent with tart, juicy apple flavors and heavy minerality. It’s a beautiful expression of the 2013 vintage, and a lovely pairing for a chicken or fish dish prepared in a delicate sauce.
