2016 Domaine de la Janasse Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc

SKU #1329275 90 points James Suckling

 Impressive lemon and grapefruit citrus ahead of lightly chalky elements. The palate has crunchy appeal with smooth, stony phenolics. Excellent drink now style.  (8/2017)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 A year fresher, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Blanc is crisper and more linear than the 2015 but shows similar orange and lime flavors, with a hint of anise as well. It should be consumed over the next year or two.(JC)  (10/2017)

90 points Wine Spectator

 Bright verbena, green fig, pear and yellow apple notes are all in the mix here, with light lemon shortbread and salted butter accents gilding the finish. Drink now through 2019.  (11/2017)

Jeb Dunnuck

 Made from Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Viognier, the 2016 Côtes du Rhône Blanc is a classic white from a great producer. Pear, citrus, white flowers and hints of tangerine give way to a medium-bodied, supple, beautifully layered and pretty wine that's as drinkable as they come.  (10/2017)

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.
