WA 93 Pts - According to Robert Parker - I know some readers will find it hard to believe, but the 2011 Nostre Pais Blanc’s aromas and rich, honeyed, full-bodied texture reminded me of the famous white Chateauneuf du Pape made by Beaucastel, which sells for three or more times the price. An amazing blend of 90% Grenache Blanc, 5% Roussanne and 5% Viognier aged six months in French oak, the Roussanne component jumps from the glass, offering notes of acacia flowers, honeysuckle, white peach, quince and pineapple.

 

The flamboyant, intense aromatics are followed by a full-bodied, exuberant, dry white wine that must be tasted to be believed. I suspect this offering has some aging potential, but why risk it given how beautiful it is showing at present. I recommend consuming it over the next several years.

 

Tasting Notes - Appearance : The pale yellow color tinted in green announces a wine with a great deal of freshness and purity. - Nose : The complex nose reveals floral and mineral notes with accents of fresh citrus fruits. - Taste : Lively and fresh, the aromas of flowers and white fruits, blends with flint. The very soft finish evinces a great deal of minerality. Rated 90+

Solid white for the price
Nose of red apple, white peach, acacia flowers, and fresh herbs intermingled with ripe grapefruit and chalk. Medium-to-full-bodied showing citrus and herbs with stone fruit and honey peeking through on the palate. Floral/mineral finish.

As it gets air, the citrus notes have faded, allowing the stone fruit and honey character come forward a bit more.
