Cave la Vinsobraise Côtes du Rhône White

New Vintage 2015!  This Côtes du Rhône white is 50% Viognier, 20% White Grenache, and 30% Marsanne. It's a little crisp but round, on the lighter side, fruity, and floral. A versatile wine, it works well with creamy and spicy foods.

About This Wine:
The Cave in Vinsobres is also a cooperative. Vinsobres is located at the top of a mountain and provides south-facing slopes at higher altitudes that allow production of high-quality grapes. Because of this terrain and its reputation for quality, Vinsobres is the first village in the Drôme to receive a Cru designation for its wines. This is the highest designation available for villages and requires the producers to restrict the numbers of acres of production to maintain quality. While wines from Vinsobres are available throughout Europe, the Cave's wines have never been exported to the U.S. Pascal Monier, Director of the Cave, is the second generation of his family to run it -- he took over from his father and has been the driving force behind the AOC's awarding of cru status to Vinsobres. The 2009 Côtes du Rhône white is 50% Viognier, 20% White Grenache, and 30% Marsanne. 2009 was a great year for Côtes du Rhône wines, and Pascal Monier told us that the 2009 is one the best whites the Cave has ever produced. It's a little crisp but round, on the lighter side, fruity, floral -- it's got it all!
