2007 M. Chapoutier Deschants St Joseph Marsanne
12 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka ReviewAhh Marsanne, that most forgotten white grape. Did you know that Tahbilk, in Australia's Goulburn Valley, is the largest growers of this capricious grape in the world? It is the Rhone Valley where it most naturally at home though and here Chapoutier crafts it as a wine of serious weight and texture. Honeysuckle, toast, honey, lemon and lots of rich flavours mark this as generous and plain delicious white wine.
Winemaker's NoteAppearance: Pale yellow with green lights.
Nose: Mineral, gun-flint (characteristic of the granite), roasted aromas, hint of dried fruits.
Palate: Frank and round attack, floral and honeyed finish.
Food: Seafood. Goat's cheese.
