Chateau De Nages "Reserve White" 2008
Region: Costieres de Nimes, Rhône, France
Winery: Chateau De Nages / Michel Gassier
Variety: Grenache Blanc(60%), Roussanne(40%)
Bright Asian pear and guava enriched with white flowers and chiseled minerality. The texture and consistency of the wine could be compared to a modern Maconnais Chardonnay, reconciling its full-figured mouthfeel with refreshing brightness. 2008 is regarded as the Rhone's first disappointing vintage in six years, but the whites and roses have, in my experience, been pretty exciting so far.
