Tasting Notes:

The eye is seduced by its pure golden hue. The nose is enticed by an explosion of white flowers, peach and citrus fruits. The palate is enthralled by an equilibrium between mellowness and liveliness that leaves a final, woody overture that gives the wine a highly distinctive character.

Robert Parker (RP) : 89 Points (2017)
The 2017 Grande Reserve White is 60% Viognier, with 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Chardonnay, aged for three months in a mixture of second and third use French oak. It comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Tasted about two months after bottling, this was still in good form. The oak impact is nominal. The freshness and the aromatics, some flowery nuances tinged with a little green (the Sauvignon Blanc just saying "hello!" for that last), make this an enticing summer white with the freshness you want and the lively feel as well. The balance is impeccable. For all of the obvious advantages it has—its zesty nuances that will serve you well in warm weather—it is actually a little understated. It tastes great and smells great. It is graceful and well balanced. This might well hold nicely for several years, but I wouldn't want to lose its youthful exuberance. Don't hesitate to dive in while it is young and fresh.

A deep purple-ruby color. Nice complexity of aromas with red fruits, blackberry liqueur, touches of incense, and notes of mint and cedar sap. The palate a continuation of the nose, suave and intense, with a nice mineral tension characteristic of great limestone terroirs. A fresh finish and an extended length which reveals a great aging aptitude.
