  • Domaine Roche-Audran Côtes du Rhône Villages 2013

    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
