Based on the hype around this wine, I found it disappointing. As usual, the producer used too much Grenache Blanc in the blend, which overpowered the more interesting varietals, like Roussanne and Marsanne. The result is a blend that is saline-tasting, too acidic, bitter and has burning tannins on the back end. That will teach me to buy a wine based solely on the merchant's shelf-talker without reading the description of the blend on the label. Live and learn.
