100% pure Roussanne-based Saint-Joseph Blanc bottling on very steep, highly granitic soils directly on  the Rhône River.

This one is for the curious folks out there who love comparing wine styles and sorting out the details. Yves Cuilleron, one of the greats of the Northern Rhône, is leaving Neal Rosenthal after many years. Prices are down to clear what else is available in the market. The wines are bold, polished examples of the Northern Rhône that still maintained the traditional wine style ideals that an iconic book like Rosenthal looks to uphold. We will offer the red next week, but these whites offer some terrific examples of the Northern Rhône’s rare white styles via the grapes Marsanne, Roussanne, and Viognier. The whites are harvested ripe and rich and small amounts of botrytis are encouraged if the vintage allows. Cuilleron’s whites are a window into the magic that created one of the oldest blending pairings in  the world: Marsanne & Roussanne. They are almost always blended so you rarely have the opportunity to get to know each grape’s personality side-by-side. We have a regional bottling and two single vineyard old vine examples of Saint-Joseph Blanc from each grape as well. Farming is organic and fermentations are wild and spontaneous.
