Gamme Vacqueyras

Castillon Blanc

  • Awards

    -JEB DUNNUCK : 92/100 : « A blend of 50% Grenache blanc and 25% each of Marsanne and Roussanne, the 2018 Vacqueyras Castillon blanc sports a vivid gold color as well as a rocking nose of tart white peach, white flowers, and toasted bread. Medium bodied, beautifully balanced, with subtle oak, it's a rich, beautifully balanced, focused white that's well worth seeking out. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years. (tasting date : 9/26/19, maturity : 2019-2023)

    -Jancis robinson 16/20 (Richard Hemming)

    Shiny golden color. Rich and complex nose, aromas of lemon peel, almond paste, jasmine, white pepper, lavender ... The palate is full and the saline finish gives it a lot of length.
