Bernard Magrez Cotes du Rhone Villages Laudun “Le Prelat” Blanc

The Rhone Valley in Eastern France is a viticultural region known for its breathtaking beauty and their wonderful wines. They have been carrying on traditional wine making methods for thousands of years! The northern region of the Rhone is known for their elegant, robust red wines and the southern region also produces legendary red wines but also some amazing white wines as well! Enter French wine magnate Bernard Magrez who is very well known in Bordeaux but owns vineyards in the Rhone Valley area as well. This is the 2014 Bernard Magrez Cotes du Rhone Villages Laudun “Le Prelat” Blanc which is predominately Grenache Blanc blended with 30% Clairette Blanche, 10% Viognier, and 10% Roussanne.

In my glass, very golden in color with straw colored hues. Aromas of apricot, peach, honey, almond, and citrus blossom fill my senses. Medium to full bodied, lush and velvety, with low acidity. Lovely flavors of bright tropical fruits, ripe apricot, citrus, honey, and a vibrant minerality. Many layers of exotic flavors are keeping my taste buds at attention! On my 2nd experience, apricot and citrus kept the focus with hints of peach pit, nutmeg, and kiwi leading to a lively honey and mineral finish. A fun and refreshing wine that keeps evolving in your glass! A great wine to pair with food or drink on its own! Pair with seafood, scallops, salmon, chicken alfredo, Italian Breaded Pork Chops, Margherita Pizza, salads, and medium cheeses. If you already have a 2014 vintage of this Bernard Magrez Le Prelat wine in your cellar, drink in the next 12 months to experience the best flavors of this wine. 91 Points! (Wine Splash).
