2018 Ferraton Père et Fils "Les Oliviers" St-Joseph Blanc

SKU #1531770 93 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A blend of equal parts Marsanne and Roussanne, the medium gold-hued 2018 Saint Joseph Les Oliviers Blanc offers up a ripe, powerful bouquet of honeyed stone fruits, tangerine peel, mint, and exotic flowers. It packs plenty of fruit on the palate as well as texture, yet it stays beautifully balanced. It's going to shine on the dinner table, and while I'd lean toward drinking bottles over the coming 4-5 years, I suspect it will keep for quite a bit longer. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A complex bouquet evokes ripe citrus and orchard fruits and honeydew melon, along with intense floral and mineral topnotes. Stains the palate with juicy Meyer lemon, white peach and fennel flavors that pick up a smoky element as the wine opens up. Shows sharp definition and mineral thrust on an impressively long finish that leaves a suave honeysuckle note behind. Fermented in demi-muids, with all whole bunches; raised in a 75/25 mix of demi-muids and stainless steel tanks. (JR) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A whisper of caramel winds its way through layers of white peach, pear and apple in this succulent 50/50 blend of Marsanne and Roussanne. Dry yet juicy in fruit profile, it finishes on lingering notes of smoke and toasted hazelnut. (AI) Inner quote mark (9/2021)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A rather opulent style, with creamed pineapple, yellow apple, yellow plum and white peach flavors gliding through, while macadamia nut and brioche notes drape over it all. A touch shy on form, but delicious. (JM, Web-2021) Inner quote mark

90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A 50-50 blend of Marsanne and Roussanne, the 2018 Saint Joseph Les Oliviers Blanc looks to be the equal of its 2017 version. There are some glossy barrel notes but also fleshy, seductive flavors of tangerines and limes. It's medium to full-bodied and round in the mouth, yet it finishes bright and zesty. (JC) Inner quote mark (1/2020)
