  • Gabriel Meffre Cotes-du-Rhone "Saint Vincent" 2013

    Snoothrank:

    In seeking out some good restaurant whites for the summer, I came across this Rhone white which reflects the inclusion of Roussanne in the blend - lending the nose a subtle white fruit scent of kiwi, gooseberry, fresh concrete and soft herbs. The entry is soft, with spring water cleanliness and pear-like flavours. For the price, you get gentle... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Excellent white Cotes du Rhone comprised of grenache blanc, viognier and clairette. Very nice floral aromatics. There's some tasty stone fruit, zippy acidity and some subtle creamy lemon with just a touch of white pepper on the finish. Read More

  • Jean-Luc Colombo la Redonne Cotes du Rhone Blanc 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Pretty golden color. Faint and pleasant tropical fruit aromas. Quite light-bodied on the palatealmost watery. Not the fruit that the aromas forecasted. A bit of bitterness.
