I have't always been impressed with Rhone whites because of typically lower acidity and the tendency to be "blousey" (I love that descriptor!) but the 2007 Côtes du Rhône Blanc, Perrin & Fils "Reserve" is one of the many white CdRs we are getting in from the 2007 that shows freshness and acidity that exemplify what a great vintage can produce in this category. Classic floral aromatics and unctuous peach and honeysuckle flavors are balanced by delicate acidity and mineral structure. The weight, flavors, and breadth on the palate can appeal to lovers of full-bodied Chardonnay, while the acidity, minerality, and aromatics are indisputably “old-world." This is the perfect choice for a summer, outdoor wedding reception or large party where you want something crowd-pleasing and versatile for your white option, but unique and memorable. 50% Grenache Blanc, 20% Viognier, 15% Marsanne, and 15% Roussanne.
Drink from 2009 to 2011

Full-bodied, creamy with lemon, peach, banana, stone, and honey, intriguing!

Country:

France

- 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. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.
Sub-Region:

Rhone

- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
