2018 Côtes-du-Rôbles Blanc
The 2018 Côtes-du-Rôbles Blanc is a blend of 55% Grenache Blanc, 30% Roussanne & 15% Viognier. Our delicious white Rhône blend has flavors and aromas of fresh pears and apricots with hints of candied ginger followed by a dry, flinty finish.
Lower than normal rainfall during the winter led to a normal bud break in the spring. Warm days and cool nights allowed the vines
to develop ample canopy cover, protecting the fruit from heat spikes throughout the summer. Harvest started early September with
fruit coming in at a steady pace throughout the season. Clusters and berries were uniform in size and quality was excellent. The
results of this vintage are wines that are bright, well-balanced and complex with intense flavor profiles.
The crisp and refreshing style of the Côtes-du-Rôbles Blanc makes it a perfect pairing partner to almost anything with shellfish, from linguine and clams to steamed lobster dripping with melted butter. This wine is also a nice accompaniment with fresh summer salads and aged cheeses.
