Avis

Smooth and silky with ripe, clean apple fruit; generous, fresh and balanced, long and rich.

The 2017 Cotes du Rhone Blanc Maison les Alexandrins les Terrasses de l’Eridan is a négociant bottling comprised of 70% Grenache Blanc, 20% Viognier and 10% Marsanne and Clairette (combined). Partly aged in oak, it hints at toasted marshmallow and ripe melon, with notes of tangerine and apricot. It’s medium-bodied, with a plump, fleshy mouthfeel and a slightly oily presence on the finish.

Aged partially in oak barrels, this medium-bodied white blend offers easygoing apple and pear flavors accented by honeycomb and nuts. Fresh but moderate acidity lends lift to the midpalate. It's a savory rather than fruit-forward wine with a moderately long finish.
