This is the second wine we have featured from this estate, capably run by Nathalie Blanc-Marès. Located in the village of Bellegarde, west of the Rhône River, the winery was built in the 1960s by her parents from a seventeenth century farmhouse. The vineyards were planted around the same time and today produce the traditional white Rhône varietals, represented in this bottling by Roussanne (60%), Marsanne (30%) and Viognier (10%). After harvest, the grapes are crushed, fermented and left to age sur lie in tank. This adds a smooth, lush texture to the wine. We tasted a mélange of honeysuckle, lemon/lime, and mineral components on the palate. A medium bodied wine that tastes good very cold will liven up any backyard barbecue.
