Tablas Creek Roussanne Blend San Luis Obispo Esprit de Tablas Blanc 2011
93 points Jeb Dunnuck (Wine Advocate): Easily my favorite of the 2011 whites, and comprised of 64% Roussanne, 26% Grenache Blanc and 10% Picpoul Blanc, the 2011 Esprit Blanc de Tablas offers up a beautifully clear, detailed and balanced profile with plenty of white peach, orange rind, buttered toast, cream and hints of hazelnut all emerging from the glass. Medium-bodied, silky and polished on the palate, with excellent acidity and freshness, this beauty can be consumed now, or cellared for a decade. Drink now-2026. (Aug 2013)
Tablas Creek, founded by the Perrin brothers of Chateau de Beaucastel and Robert Haas of Vineyard Brands, produces organically farmed, estate-grown Rhone varietals and blends in the limestone clay soils of west Paso Robles.
External Reviews for Tablas Creek Roussanne Blend San Luis Obispo Esprit de Tablas Blanc
Pale gold. Vibrant citrus fruit and floral scents are deepened by notes of licorice and pear skin. Spicy penetrating and pure offering intense spice-accented lemon and green apple flavors and a hint of chamomile. Dry and nervy on the persistent floral-driven finish. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2011 Esprit de Tablas Blanc is gorgeous and complete in this vintage. The cool bracing personality of the year is evident but at the same time the Esprit has a little more complexity than the single variety whites. In 2011 the Grenache Blanc is particularly expressive in this striking delicious white. The 2011 is 64% Roussanne 26% Grenache Blanc and 10% Picpoul Blanc. 90+ Antonio Galloni.
