It has aromas of stalk, rosemary and a green bouquet garnis character. The palate is full bodied, with medium tannins and rich expression, together with high alcohol (15%) and no edges.

This is an excellent blend of clairette (45%), bourboulenc (45%) and grenache blanc (10%) from Domaine les Hautes Cances in the Rhône Valley. It has aromatics of straw and earth. The palate has medium length, balance, similar flavours and is super moreish. An excellent accompaniment to seafood, its style will appeal to those partial to local marsanne and roussanne blends. Good to Very Good
