Incorporating 15% Roussanne, the Marsanne dominated 2016 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Christophe Blanc spent 10 months in barrel before bottling. Its medium gold color is followed by a terrific bouquet of buttered pineapple, citrus blossom and honeysuckle. Clean, pure and beautifully balanced, with good acidity and ample density and texture, it's a big step up over the base cuvée.
Barrel-fermented in 40% new oak, the 2016 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvee Christophe Blanc is a blend of 85% Marsanne and 15% Roussanne. It smells of singed marshmallow, which gives way to melon and pineapple flavors on the medium to full-bodied palate. There’s a nice leesy richness to the plump, appealing mouthfeel, lingering on the finish. (JC)
Engaging, with a thread of fresh acidity that adds energy to the mix of brioche, creamed melon, lemon curd and white peach flavors. Rich finish. (JM)
