91 points Wine Spectator: "Open and rounded in feel, with flashes of salted butter, macadamia nut, white peach and creamed yellow apple fruit. A light blanched almond hint on the finish keeps this fresh. Clairette, Viognier and Grenache Blanc. Drink now through 2020. 375 cases made, 130 cases imported. (JM)" (11/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Mostly Clairette, with up to 20% Grenache Blanc and Viognier (combined), the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Blanc features alluring scents of honey, tangerine and lime. Medium to full-bodied, it's silky in t...

92 points James Suckling: "A fresh and gently grassy feel with fragrant lemons and apples, leading to a palate that has baked-pear and pastry-like flavors. Smooth and resolved. Grenache blanc, clairette, roussanne and bourboulenc. From organically grown grapes. Drink now. (NS)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: The Verquière estate has been passed down from father to son for 4 generations and is now managed by brothers Romain and Thibaut Chamfort. Following age-old traditions and sustainable practices, the estate was recently certified organic. Verquière recently ...

Costières de Nîmes is at the southernmost part of the Rhône Valley, on the opposite bank from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. One of our best new finds is Château de l'Ermitage, which produces three terrific values with immanent drinkability. The estate's history traces back to the 12th century when the winery produced wine for the pilgrims of St-Jacques de Compostelle who were traveling the Santiago de Compostela. The property is now owned by the Castillon family, and today Michel and his son Jerome manage the vineyards and winemaking. The "Victor" is named for th...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Barrel fermented in 40% new oak, the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Blanc Cuvee Christophe is a blend of 85% Marsanne and 15% Roussanne. Classy, subtle notes of pencil shavings highlight melon and pear notes in this medium-bodied, succulent wine. It shows ample concentration, a fine, silky texture and finishes with elegant persistence. Lovely stuff. (JC)" (12/2018) 91 points Wine Spectator: "A ripe, plump style, with a warm brioche note around a core of creamed melon and peach flavors. Offers a lightly toasty hint throu...

90 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Light gold-colored, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc offers a classic bouquet of Meyer lemons, tart peach, and spice. It's medium-bodied, with solid depth of fruit, nicely integrated acidity, and a clean finish. It's very much in the style of this fresher, more moderately concentrated vintage (for the whites) and ideal for drinking over the coming 3-5 years. The blend is 20% each of Grenache Blanc, Picpoul, Bourboulenc, Roussanne, and Clairette, brought up in a mix of vessels." (08/2019) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate...

Importer's notes: "Vineyard Location: The vineyards for Circa are located in Mauves on granitic slopes. This white St Joseph differs from the white Hermitage in that the soil of white Hermitage (clay and limestone) gives softness and suppleness to the wine whereas the granite soil expresses a wonderful minerality which perfectly accompanies food and gives an additional sense of vivacity. Vinification: Fermentation 100% in barrel. Aged in barriques for 14 months."

94 points Vinous: "Pale gold. Powerful, mineral-accented Meyer lemon and pear nectar scents show excellent clarity and complicating suggestions of fennel, iodine and smoky lees. Minerally and precise on the palate, offering concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors; deeper suggestions of honeydew melon and peach emerge on the back half. Shows impressive depth as well as energy and finishes pliant and extremely long, with a suave floral note hanging on. (JR)" (10/2018) 93 points Wine Spectator: "This is alluring, with creamed yellow apple, white pea...

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 Bouquet de Blanc is an equal parts blend of Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne all fermented using indigenous yeasts. Aged in stainless steel, it is ...

Jeb Dunnuck writes: "Located between Valréas and Vinsobres, in the southern Rhone, Mas de Sainte Croix covers 27 hectares of vines and makes a number of cuvees."

91 points Wine Spectator: "Plump and round in feel, with creamed star fruit, yellow apple and white peach flavors, laced with chamomile and salted butter hints. Hard to resist. Clairette and Grenache Blanc. (JM)" (12/2019) K&L Notes: This exquisite vineyard was planted in the 1870s (that's not a typo). These old gnarly vines with their highly restricted yields produce some of the richest most concentrated Clairette in the entire Rhône Valley. Planted on a mix of sand, clay and pudding stones, this wine is the essence of sleek minerality. A touch of bar...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the whites of the vintage is the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc, a gorgeous, rich, layered effort that stays perfectly balanced and pure. Classic notes of white flowers, honeysuckle, white peach, and ample minerality all give way to a medium to full-bodied white that has loads of texture, good freshness, and a great finish. This is a brilliant Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc that makes a mockery of so many of the overly lean, fresh, so called elegant whites being produced today." (08/2019) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Bright, wit...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A tank-aged blend of Clairette and Roussanne, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is medium to full-bodied, with a plump, appealing texture and modest flavors of pear and pineapple. It's a delicious, easy-drinking white Rhône to drink over the next few years, seemingly without the gravitas of some other recent vintages. (JC)" (09/2019) K&L Notes: Le Vieux Donjon is a staple producer in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, but what sets them apart is their concentration of extremely old-vines on their smallish, 18-hectare estate...

Stephane Vedeau is the proprietor/winemaker behind critical darling Les Fermes du Mont. In 2010, Vedeau added Clos Bellane from the Côtes du Rhône-Village Valreas to his portfolio. Valreas is the northernmost of the Village level Côtes du Rhônes and Stephane's vineyards sit above 400 meters. This cooler climate and higher exposition lead to bright and vibrant Rhône wines that are fresh, fruit-filled, and harmoniously balanced.

One of the most interesting producers in the southern Rhone, Clos de Trias practices biodynamic non-intervention winemaking in all their cuvees. The blanc is composed of around 80% Grenache Blanc with the remainder Clairette. Some whole cluster fermentation is done as well as between 12-24 hours of skin contact. It is aged for 24 months large oak barrels. It is bottled unfined and unfiltered. *Natural Wine, Biodynamic*

From the winery: "A family estate for five generations, we still have one bottle of 1847 Muscat that demonstrates just how old it is. We started making wine at the beginning of the 19th Century at Domaine des Bernardins. The property was previously owned by Bernardin monks before being transformed into a wine estate. Mr Louis Castaud was the first one to show real concern about how the village's traditional production had almost disappeared and achieved appellation status for Muscat de Beaumes de Venise in 1945 after 10 years of hard work. His family wer...

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Year in and year out, Jaboulet’s top white is the Hermitage Chevalier de Sterimberg, which is aged in new oak for nine months prior to bottling. The 2001 (a blend of 35% Roussanne and 65% Marsanne) exhibits aromas of ripe apples, honeysuckle, and flowers in a full-bodied, dense, chewy style with terrific texture, a rare unctuosity, good acidity as well as a long, concentrated, finish. Like most of these white Hermitages, it will drink well young, then close down, and re-emerge 10-12 years later. It will last for ...

Dominating the Rhône Valley from the foothills of the Mont Ventoux, Domaine Durban enjoys stunning views of the area. The wines are special too. Muscat de Beaumes de Venise is undoubtedly the best of all the Muscat wines made in Southern France, and Durban is considered the best estate. The wines are a pure delight with the distinctive Muscat flavors of flowers, tropical fruit and honey. The perfect dessert wine but also delicious with foie gras, melon and Roquefort cheese.

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Moving south to the Saint-Péray releases, the 2017 Saint-Péray Roussanne (100% Roussanne aged in barrels and tank) offers lots of golden apple, buttered citrus, white flowers, and honeyed minerality in a medium to full-bodied, brilliantly chiseled, concentrated style. It’s a sensational Roussanne." (12/2018) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Saint Peray Roussanne fermented half in older barriques and half in larger wooden vats. Honeyed pineapple is joined by citrus curd on the nose and full-bodied palate of this...

91 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 80% Roussanne and 20% Bourboulenc, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc is a beautiful effort that has classy notes of white currants, honeysuckle, white peach, and some white flowers. It's medium-bodied, elegant and seamless, with a great finish. The white from this estate is a year-in, year-out no brainer purchase." (08/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc comes from the domaine's single hectare of white grapes, planted to 80% Roussanne and 20% Bourboulenc. One-third is fe...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Cotes du Rhone Blanc includes a majority of Viognier (as usual), supported by 15% to 20% Roussanne and bit of other Rhône varieties. It's a bold mouthful of apricot, pineapple and citrus, with a slightly floral nose. Medium to full-bodied, it's plump and round in the mouth, followed by a fresh, slightly briny finish. Drink it over the next couple of years. (JC)" (10/2018) Wine Spectator: "Apricot, nectarine and green plum notes hold sway here, with flashes of fennel and star fruit on the finish. Ripe and rounded...

98 points Decanter: "60% Marsanne, 40% Roussanne Tasting notes: This is a tricky white to argue with but an easy one to drink. Resplendent vanilla, toast, peach and pastry perfume. Very rounded, with oak silk on the palate and a very long and regal nutty-cashew finish. Satisfying, mouthfilling wine. Needs food, but won’t fail to impress. Textbook stuff. " (06/2019) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Bottled only a week before I tasted it, Domaine Belle's 2017 Hermitage Blanc is a superb effort. Deep straw in color, it's a 60-40 blend of Marsann...

96 points Wine Spectator: "Warm and lush in feel, featuring creamed melon, peach, apricot and quince notes mixed with honeysuckle, brioche, almond and white ginger nuances through the finish. Shows terrific range and depth, with the cut and drive to match. (JM)" (11/2019) 95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From the Méal and les Beaumes lieux-dits and 100% Marsanne aged 12 months mostly in demi-muids, the 2017 Ermitage Le Reverdy sports a medium gold color as well as a powerful, honey, mineral-laced style. Caramelized white peach, pineapple, orange peel, and flowe...

95-97 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is all Roussanne and comes from a three-hectare parcel of vines planted in 1901. It offers a heavenly bouquet of white currants, white flowers, honeysuckle, and toasted bread that opens up beautifully with time in the glass. Rich, full-bodied, powerful and concentrated, it stays perfectly balanced on the palate and has that rare sense of richness paired with freshness that’s the hallmark of truly great wines." (08/2019) 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "T...

93-95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc takes it up a notch, offering rocking notes of white peach, quince, crushed rocks, and honeysuckle. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a beautiful core of sweet fruit, a layered texture, and a great finish. It’s unquestionably another beautiful wine, and while 2018 was challenging for the whites, you wouldn’t know it by tasting this." (08/2019) 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A terrific example of Beaucastel's white, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc boasts lavish aromas of honey...

94 points Decanter: "This wine spends a year in demi-muid and foudre, then is bottled in the spring, malo completed. It is aromatically firm and assertive, with honey, heather and quince aromas. The palate is lushly textured with a slightly oily side to the palate that coats the mouth in flavour, before finishing on a mineral note. It remains fresh despite the fairly low acidity, with considerable extract and texture. (MW)" (10/2017) 93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The finest white I’ve tasted from this estate, the 2016 Vaucluse Blanc is a complex blend that i...

94 points Wine Spectator: "Broad and ripe, with a gorgeous creamy texture to the melon, fig, pear and yellow apple fruit flavors, all inlaid liberally with heather, singed almond and sweetened butter notes. A light stony spine gives this just enough support, letting the flattering flavors play out beautifully through the finish. Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Roussanne. Drink now through 2019." (07/2017)
