The Wine Advocate 92 FOR THE 2017 VINTAGE
Wafting from the glass with notes of peach, anise and rose water, the 2017 Côtes de Tablas Blanc is full-bodied, textural and layered, with lovely balance and a long, flavorful finish. It's a blend of 44% Viognier, 24% Marsanne, 20% Grenache Blanc and 12% Roussanne. 1,750 cases were produced.
Vinous - Antonio Galloni 92 FOR THE 2017 VINTAGE
Light bright yellow. Mineral-accented orange, honeydew melon and pear nectar on the highly perfumed nose, along with a hint of pungent flowers. Juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors show impressive clarity, and a touch of bitter quinine adds back-end cut. Shows impressive depth as well as delineation on the finish, which hangs on with strong, mineral-tinged persistence.
Wine Spectator 92 FOR THE 2017 VINTAGE
Supple and elegant, this white is a graceful mix of spiced poached pear, nectarine and dried mango notes, with hints of spice and dried honeysuckle. Harmonious and wonderfully juicy on the fresh finish. Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne and Roussanne. Drink now. 1,800 cases made.
