This fresh-fruited, white Rhône discovery hails from a top cellar in the historic town of Courthézon (once governed by the Princes of Orange). Crafted by the highly acclaimed Thierry Ferlay, it sports a gold medal from the notoriously tough Concours Général Agricole de Paris.
To make Le Prince, Thierry selected three star local grapes grown in some of his favorite vineyards, during the exceptional 2016 vintage. Grenache Blanc (65%) imparts roundness and rich, stone-fruit flavors to the blend, with Clairette (25%) adding body and Bourboulenc (10%) bringing lovely floral aromatics.
On the palate, look forward to vibrant flavors of white peach and apricot, underpinned by a refreshing mineral streak and a well-integrated finish. Delicious pairings include roasted cauliflower and pan-seared salmon. It’s also delightful on its own or with goat cheese.
A white of this class is a surefire way to impress guests. Don’t miss your chance to order – limited cases available.
