2017 Tablas Creek "Esprit de Tablas Blanc" Paso Robles White Rhône Blend

SKU #1442041 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Limpid straw-yellow. A highly perfumed, mineral-accented bouquet evokes ripe citrus and orchard fruits, buttered toast and succulent flowers, and a fennel nuance emerges with air. Shows superb depth and sharp delineation, offering vibrant tangerine, pear nectar, honeysuckle and succulent herb flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. Powerful yet graceful, displaying sharp focus and minerally thrust on an impressively long finish that features repeating floral and orchard fruit notes. (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Esprit Blanc de Tablas is very promising, revealing aromas of peaches, honeycomb, paraffin and spice, followed by a full-bodied, gourmand palate that avoids any excess. It’s a blend of 68% Roussanne, 17% Grenache Blanc, 7% Picpoul Blanc, 4% Picardan and 4% Clairette Blanche that will be bottled in December. (EB) Inner quote mark (5/2018)

91 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Esprit De Tablas Blanc offers more richness and depth, which is largely missing from many of these wines. White peach, quince, honeysuckle, and hints of stone fruits all emerge from the glass, and it's nicely textured, medium-bodied, has good acidity, and a clean finish. Inner quote mark (10/2019)

K&L Notes

Winery Notes: "The Tablas Creek Vineyard 2017 Esprit de Tablas Blanc is a blend of five estate-grown varietals, propagated from budwood cuttings from the Château de Beaucastel estate. Roussanne provides the core richness, minerality, and flavors of honey and spice, while Grenache Blanc adds green apple and anise flavors, a lush mouthfeel and bright acids. Picpoul Blanc adds a saline minerality and tropical notes. This is the first vintage incorporating two new varieties to the blend. Picardan brings a elegant minerality while Clairette Blanche is crisp and gently citrusy."
