2021 La Fleur Solitaire Blanc
Following an experiment with a micro cuvée crafted from seven barrels back in 2009, this wine has grown to be a staple on the list.
Each parcel is picked separately in the cooler, early daylight, hours for gentle pressing that same morning, and each is fermented at a low temperature. To a base of Grenache Blanc, Viognier is blended along with co-fermented pairs of Roussanne/Marsanne and Bourboulenc/Clairette.
Over the years the proportion vinified in stainless steel has increased, with just under a third of the wine vinified and matured for 6 months French oak barrels to add complexity and creaminess.
Tasting Note: A proper white Côtes du Rhône that's fresh and medium-bodied. The nose is pretty and delicate, just hints of hedgerow flowers. The flavours are nuanced and refined rather than overt. Careful use of oak adds texture to this very drinkable white.
Origin: Côtes du Rhône, France
Blend: Grenache Blanc (50%), Viognier (20%), Roussanne (7.5%)
