2019 CALMEL AND JOSEPH Le Penchant Blanc 75cl (Pays d'Oc, France)
Style - Rich
Grapes - 100% Roussanne
Tasting - Deeply fragrant, inviting, yellow blossom and nectarines with honeysuckle that pulls through to the palate like a golden thread. Ripe white-peach fruit flaring fan-like across the mouth, beautifully juicy and fresh, with the added delicacy of chamomile flowers. Fennel-seed crunch on the finish.
FYI: Roussanne is like a Bonzai tree, a complete bastard to grow but the results can be stunning when done right.
