K&L Notes

Guy Farge took over the management of his family estate in 1980. Originally he sold his fruit to the Cave de Tain (where he worked) and then to Delas. In 2007, he began producing wines under his own label. Each year, the wines have grown and evolved as has Guy's winemaking prowess. Now working with his son Thomas, each bottling represents some of the best we have seen from his primarily granitic terroirs. The Vania is a blend of 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne aged in a mix of large barrels and stainless steel. Filled with a perfume of white flowers, almond paste and spices, it is a terrific version of Saint-Joseph blancs.

    This Northern Rhone charmer is a shimmying, golden-hued blend of Marsanne and Roussanne. fermented in steel vats and older oak barrels for about seven months. A melange of exotica, its bursts forth with lively tropical and orchard fruit aromas—apricot, melon, mango, papaya, honeysuckle, guava—and further shows off floral, spicy, nutty and marzipan notes. Pairing? Any dish that can handle the full, ripe Bette Midler flamboyance of this audacious white Rhône.

    Overall, this is a very luscious wine! The fruits, mostly tropical and stone fruits, are soft and inviting; the depth is slightly honeyed; and the finish just keeps going and going and going. This would make a lovely aperitif, and it would be tons of fun at the dinner table! Good times will be had with this wine.
