"Its beautiful robe mingles deep gold and green hues. The powerful display of complex aromas is layered with a multitude of surprising scents: white flowers, beeswax, sweet spices, star-anise, violet, and vanilla. The incredibly dense body, both soft and rich, delivers fully ripe fruit flavors. The finish is an aromatic bounty that offers a delicate harmony that you will long remember." —winemaker

Blend: 45% Viognier, 30% Roussanne, 25% Grenache Blanc
"A wine I tasted from barrel last year, the 2013 Costieres de Nimes Lou Coucardie Blanc is a sensational blend of 45% Viognier, 30% Roussanne and 25% Grenache Blanc that was raised in new and once-used 500-liter French oak barrels. Big, ripe and layered, with lots of honeyed apricot, ripe peach and butter citrus all soaring from the glass, it's full-bodied, balanced and unctuously textured, yet never seems heavy or cumbersome in the least. It deserves a classy meal (anything with a cream sauce would be terrific) and should evolve nicely for 2-3 years (although there's no need to delay gratification)." —Jeb Dunnuck, The Wine Advocate
