Product Description

V. 2021

67% Roussanne, 30% Picpoul blanc, 3% Grenache Blanc,

This bot­tling of the Gap has notes of San­ta Rosa peach­es, jas­mine, orange blos­som, cren­shaw mel­on, and herbs de provence. A tex­tur­al dream, the wine is both lus­cious and silky. The rich full bod­ied Rous­sanne, that saw 32 hours of skin con­tact, is reigned in beau­ti­ful­ly with the acid­i­ty of the Picpoul Blanc. Lav­ish fla­vors of lemon and laven­der pastille, hon­ey driz­zled stone fruit, and fresh pear build towards a crisp fin­ish with notes of cit­rus zest, wet shale, and dried herbs. This vin­tage is up there with the 2015 and 2018 Gap as recent favorites, and is not one to miss out on.
