47% Roussanne, 28% Clairette Blanche, 25% Marsanne $78
The white from this terrific estate, the 2018 Soph is based on 49% Roussanne, 26% Marsanne, and 25% Clairette Blanche and spent 11 months in 37% new French oak. Offering a touch of yellow fruits, crushed citrus, and poached pear, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness that's beautifully balanced by bright acidity and a distinct sense of minerality on the finish. This rich, food-friendly, incredibly impressive white will keep for 3-5 years.
