2012 Chateau Saint-Roch "Vieilles Vignes" Cotes-du-Rousillon Blanc

SKU #1136422 89 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Composed of 80% Grenache Blanc and 20% Marsanne, the 2012 Vieilles Vignes Blanc comes from 50-year-old vines planted in limestone and clay soils. A delightful bouquet of caramelized honeyed grapefruit, white currants and other assorted citrus jumps from the glass of this crisp, dry, medium-bodied white. With surprising length and power, it reminded me of a restrained, more laid-back top white Hermitage -- at a fraction of the price. Consume it over the next several years.  (12/2012)

As someone who has been a little late & reluctant to enter the CA Chardonnay party, I have always truly admired white wines with acid & minerality in the forefront. This wine, which sells for less than a song, exudes those qualities. The nose is bright & makes you think of refreshment on a warm summer day. Lemon, stone fruit, minerality & bright, bracing acidity are what await you in this glass. It imbibes so well it beckons you for more. Excellent find at almost too low a cost!

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
