Tasted out of bottle, the 2015 Esprit de Tablas Blanc checks in as a blend of 55% Roussanne, 28% Grenache Blanc and 17% Picpoul Blanc raised mostly in foudre. It’s a rich, beautifully layered and textured white that’s going to shine on the dinner table. Exotic/tropical notes of orange blossom, caramelized lemons, wood smoke and spice give way to a medium to full-bodied, clean, impeccably balanced white that has plenty of density and length. It’s beautiful today, yet has the capacity to evolve gracefully for 10-15 years.
Composed of 55% Roussanne, 28% Grenache Blanc and 17% Picpoul Blanc, the 2015 Esprit Blanc de Tablas is a bit of an animal—in the best possible way! It opens with a nose of charcuterie, salted nuts and dried herbs over a core of lemon curd, fresh peaches and hay. The medium-bodied palate delivers loads of savory layers, matched by a lively backbone and satiny texture, finishing long with herb and nut layers. 1,875 cases were made. This should age beautifully over the next ten years! (LPB)
Brilliant yellow. An intensely perfumed bouquet displays mineral-accented orange, pear and jasmine scents, along with a deeper suggestion of honey. Energetic citrus and orchard fruit flavors coat the palate and show excellent clarity. A suave floral nuance emerges steadily as the wine opens up. Impressively concentrated yet nervy; the very long, focused finish features suave, lingering florality. (JR)
Lemon butter and plump pineapple aromas are cut by crushed gravel and an edgy citrus peel character on the nose of this blend of 55% Roussanne, 28% Grenache Blanc and 17% Picpoul Blanc. The Roussanne provides a rich midpalate, full of fleshy but not overripe baked apple flavors, dusted with baking spice and leveled by buoyant acidity.
Focused on fruity peach, mandarin orange and pineapple flavors, with a juicy, smooth core. Floral highlights, along with matcha green tea and fennel accents, are harmonious and lovely on the smooth and crunchy finish. Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Picpoul Blanc. Drink now. (MW)
