Philippe & Vincent Jaboulet 2016 Crozes Hermitage Blanc

Bottle notes 

This is a 100% Marsanne from Crozes Hermitage in the Northern Rhone. The nose is rich and strong in aroma of stoned fruits and wet stones. The palate is rich and concentrated, and very persistent with the stoned fruit flavours and delicate floral notes on the finish. This is a full-bodied white, but shows delicious minerality and freshness. Delicious, and a great all-rounder.

 

The Rhône Valley wine region follows the Rhône river from just south of Lyon in the North to its delta on the Mediterranean coast. The region can roughly be divided into two parts: The Northern Rhone, where Syrah dominates the reds, and the Southern Rhone, where the reds are almost always blends, but with Grenache Noir the dominant variety.

 

The region is also know for its whites, with the tiny AOC of Condrieu being the spiritual home of Viognier, and the Marsanne / Roussanne wines of Hermitage, St Joseph and others.
