Many of you have had the pleasure of meeting Philippe during one of his (too infrequent) visits to the store and many more of you have been drinking his robust Cotes du Rhone reds for years.  So you already know that Philippe is a humble, no fuss, no drama, winegrower who makes wines loaded with ripe fruit, bold textures, long finishes, and oodles of honest Rhone character.  What you might not yet have discovered:  Philippe is one of the best white wine makers working in the Southern Rhone today!

Especially 2017, where one sniff and sip will have you agreeing with me and his importer, Olivier Daubresse:  this is the best white wine Philippe has ever made.  As always, it’s a blend of 50% Viognier, 30% Grenache Blanc and 20% Marsanne done entirely in tank.  The nose is so pretty, with generous but poised aromas of summer peach and apricot, a squirt of Clementine, white flowers, and just a touch of crushed stone.  As Philippe’s Viognier vines have matured, the floral/stone fruit notes have become a bit more restrained, allowing notes of earth, mineral and citrus to become easier to small and taste.  The flavors are round and smooth on the front and mid-palate before the lemon, peach and crushed stone flavors gain power and breadth across the long, mouthwatering, finish.

A joy to drink tonight on its own or with a broad range of summery foods, this will handle heavier and more savory dishes come winter and mature gracefully for at least a decade.
