Côtes du Rhône Blanc Vin Gourmand, Dauvergne Ranvier

Côtes du Rhône Blanc Vin Gourmand, Dauvergne Ranvier

A white Côtes du Rhône made primarily of Viognier, with Grenache Blanc and Marsanne; the grapes being grown in vineyards mostly on the right bank which receive enough sunlight to completely ripen the grapes, but are situated at relatively high altitudes to preserve the freshness. Even with the cooling effect gained by farming at altitude, the grapes need to be harvested at the earliest opportunity to maintain the acidity levels in the wine. Fragrant, the wine shows exotic fruit such as lychee and mango; the palate backs these up with yellow peach and pink grapefruit.
