Yves Cuilleron Les Vignes d’a Cote Marsanne 2015
The wine is a bright, crystal clear yellow gold. On the nose it’s fresh but delicate with classic Marsanne aromas of honeysuckle, pear, caramel and musk. These delicious flavours follow through to the palate, where you’ll find them intermingled with lemon, peach, beeswax and nuts - yum. I love the way this starts out so zesty, gaining weight and viscosity, filling out generously across the mid-palate, and finishing crisp and dry with a fresh kick of acid and minerals.
Like the Syrah, this is newly released so no notes from critics, but this is classic Marsanne. 12% alc./vol, drink young - up to 3-4 years.
