- Dom Philippe Plantevin Cotes Du Rhone Blanc 2010 Product #25236 (In Stock)
Another fine vintage for the Southern Rhone and Philippe Plantevin. His 2010 CdR Blanc is a cool fermented blend of 40% Viognier, 30% Grenache Blanc, and 30% Marsanne delivers a wonderful interplay between richness and brightness. Give a swirl and watch it explode with aromas of peaches, Clementine, and honeysuckle. Then, take a sip and feel it fill your mouth with those flavors plus tangy apricot and refreshing crushed mint. A tad zingier than the rich 2009, but still wonderfully ripe and rich. If you’ve enjoyed Philippe’s 2006 Blanc, you know that this will age beautifully, gaining more herbal and dried honey notes even as the fruit keeps shining through.
