"Certified organic. Roussanne, Marsanne and Rolle (Vermentino) grown on schist.
This is a really useful, underpriced appellation. The schist is evident - quite lean, muscular and refreshing. A hint of lemon cough drops with a mix of honeysuckle and lime juice. Something to chew on. Excellent acidity but probably a relatively sophisticated taste. Serious wine. 14% Drink 2016-2019 16/20", Jancis Robinson, MW, on jancisrobinson.com, 28th November 2016
An unoaked blend: mainly Roussanne and Marsanne with the addition of about 15% Rolle (Vermentino) to give some aromatic lift and energy. Open aromas of spice and herb with honey. A big palate of ripe stone fruit is deliciously fresh, quite exotic, with a limey bite. Textured and long. Now-2018
