Les Collines de Laure Blanc, Jean-Luc Colombo, IGP Méditerranée, Rhône, France, 2019
Grapes: Blend of 50% Rolle (Vermentino) and 50% Viognier
"Les Collines de Laure" (The Hills of Laure) brings together a blend of grapes from the Rhône and Provence with grapes chosen from carefully selected parcels in the best terroirs. This is a lovely fusion of regions where the Provençal grape Rolle (aka Vermentino) joins Viognier in a textured, weighty yet elegant white. Traditional vinification, with a long fermentation at low temperature is then followed by bottling quickly to preserve the wines wonderful freshness and fruit.
A bright yellow colour with green highlights. Delicate nose of white flowers with hints of fennel, white peach and pear. The palate is fresh and structured, nicely rounded, with a surprising long finish.
"Boldly perfumed notes of Oriental lilies and freshly cut grass introduce this 50/50 blend of Vermentino (known as Rolle locally) and Viognier. Slim and vibrantly balanced, it's a peachy, heady dry white highlighted by a piercing mineral lift and crisp tangerine acidity. Best enjoyed now–2024."
89/100 points, Anna Lee C. Iijima, WINE ENTHUSIAST, July 2021
Pairs perfectly with a pissaladière (onion/olive/anchovy savoury tart), wild asparagus in omelette, fritters of courgette flowers, grilled cuttle fish, or simply as an aperitif. To be drunk in its youth. Serve chilled to 12⁰C
