Domaine de Rimauresq Blanc 2006

The solid Domaine de Rimauresq now has 57 hectares of vineyards in the AOC of Côtes the Provence for the production of red (Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Grenache and Carignan), rosé (Cinsault, Tibouren, Grenache and Syrah) and white wines. This one is made from 90% Rolle – as Vermentino is called in Southern France – and 10% Ugni Blanc. The wine has a straw yellow colour with aromas of stonefruit, citrus, herbs and straw following through to a palate where a soft texture is added by extended lees contact and regular battonage, offering an interesting contrast with the more mineral vivacity on the finish. Drink this one now. 87 points
