My Take: I loved this and thought it was the most fun, and still a serious wine showing perfect typicity for wines from the Northern Rhone that are this typical blend of these 2 great white grapes.  A beautiful nose that wafts up from the glass of sweet pears, peach, and honeydew, with the perfect light salty cut to the wine.  Mouthwatering, juicy, fresh, and long on the palate.

Limpid yellow. Penetrating aromas of fresh citrus and pit fruits are complemented by hints of dusty minerals and jasmine. Juicy and concentrated in the mouth, offering peach nectar and Meyer lemon flavors that take on a spicy quality on the back half. The mineral and floral notes repeat on the broad, sappy finish, which clings with very good authority.

John Livingstone Learmonth: ****

fine yellow robe with a joli shine to it. The nose is really precise, honey with peach, light apricot, a hint of aniseed. This is good country wine, has enjoyable body, fleshy content, a compote of white strawberry, peach. This is bang on STGT wine that gives nice drinking, table over aperitif, persists well into a supple, round, well furnished close, peach stone on the aftertaste.
