(cask/vat, sugars finished) pale yellow; wide, mildly rich nose with a sprightly top air. Agreeable richness on the palate, has a fresh outer layer. Its oak is absorbed, but will show through more after another 3+ months` raising. Ends on some richness. To 2014. Nov 2008

mild yellow; honey, pineapple, oak influence on a rich-toned bouquet. The palate bears soft, squeezy fruit, with a taste of flan and white fruit jam. The length is steady, and it ends roundly. There is more oak on the nose than on the palate. The Roussanne provides a late note of salt and calm matter. Attractive wine that can serve for the aperitif. “I advise that this be drunk early, in the first 2 years, since the Grenache blanc is fragile,” Laurent Brotte. Nov 2008
