An outstanding French white, especially at this price point, the Cotes du Rhone Blanc from Cellier des Dauphins is one of the best we've tasted this summer. A beautifully perfumed blend of old vines Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, and Viognier, this elegant French white is loaded with aromas of green apple, melon and citrus. Inviting flavors of pineapple, honey, and summer citrus are found on the medium to full-bodied palate with gorgeous minerality and texture. Don't chill it down too much, as you don't want to miss the richness. A perfect pairing for shellfish, chicken, veal, pork and vegetables prepared with savory butter, cream or mild cheese-based sauces, the Cuvee Speciale Blanc is a hidden gem!
"The 2021 Cuvee Speciale Blanc from powerhouse Cellier des Dauphins is a beauty. Made from Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, and Viognier this medium-bodied, deliciously crisp and racy white offers lots of citrus and lime characteristics, a hint of minerality and bright acidity." The Wine Buyer, 92 Points
