A gorgeous white that savvy consumers should snatch up, the 2011 St.-Joseph Les Granits Blanc is a smoking Marsanne that, as Northern Rhone whites go, represents an incredible value. Loaded with tropical fruits, melon, buttered citrus and bitter orange rind, this full-bodied beauty has knockout texture and richness, great acidity and blockbuster length.
Salted butter, warm brioche, chamomile and creamed Jonagold apple notes glide together seamlessly in this version, backed by a creamy, pure, stone-tinged finish. Drink now through 2019. 52 cases imported.
Pale honey colour. Honeysuckle nose. Pretty low acid makes it taste a little sweet but gloriously beguiling. Not that intense but very flattering with just a hint of bitter quinine quality on the end. Fun. Jancis Robinson
This wine is an absolute knockout (maybe the sweetness will put some off). Deep rich lively nose that follows effortlessly to a honeysuckle palate with pineapple and citrus rinds. Lovely, heavenly finish. Good stuff!~vivino.com
