57% Roussanne, 22% Marsanne, 21% Clairette Blanche $75
Pale gold. Penetrating, mineral-accented aromas of ripe citrus and orchard fruits, jasmine and vanilla are joined by hints of fennel and toasty lees. Juicy and deeply concentrated, offering powerful pear nectar, Meyer lemon and peach nectar flavors that show excellent clarity and mineral cut. The pear and floral notes come back strong on the chewy, strikingly long finish, which hangs on with superb persistence.
