Availability: In stock (6)
60% Marsanne, 40% Roussanne
An elegant beauty that exhibits delicacy and nuance. A delightful expressions of terroir characterized by graceful structures and seductive floral aromatics.

Kermit began collaborating with Philippe Faury in the blending of his blancs in the 1990s because he was—unusually at the time—particular about wanting the wines he imported to remain unfiltered. Today, we continue to work with Lionel in selecting the blend of parcels and aging vessels that contribute to this bottling. The 2019 is roughly 60% Marsanne and 40% Roussanne, and mostly aged in tank to preserve as much freshness and fruit as possible. The little bit of wine that was aged in oak will give you a delightful glimmer of opulence. The result is very delicate, round, and elegant, showcasing classic notes of peachy stone fruit.—Tom Wolf
