|Varietal:||Chardonnay , Grenache Blanc , Marsanne|
This wine - apparently produced by a favourite Roussillon house of Parker - does make for a wonderful, affordable wine. It has a nose of those over-perfumed kind of flowers like Wisteria or Clematis - perhaps Honeysuckle - but this is inviting (even p...
