The 2010 Patelin de Tablas Blanc is a blend in the style of French Cotes du Rhone whites, with flavors of lemon and mineral, a hint of tropicality from the Viognier, and a long finish with surprising richness.
Blend: 50% Grenache Blanc, 33% Viognier, 10% Roussanne, 7% Marsanne
"The 2010 Patelin de Tablas Blanc (50% Grenache Blanc, 33% Viognier, 10% Roussanne, 7% Marsanne) shows the richness of Grenache Blanc in its white peaches, flowers and jasmine. It is a beautifully delineated white, as well as a terrific value. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright yellow. Fresh lemon and pear aromas are complemented by notes of green almond and white pepper. Focused and racy, offering spicy citrus pith and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of bitter quinine. Finishes on a dry, stony note, with very good tangy length. This is a really impressive freshman effort. "
