Aromatic AF. Herbal with tobacco notes. Spectacular. — 2 months ago
Pegau...in my humble opinion the best CndP. Silky smooth and refined. Balancing acidity and depth of flavour. This is so so good. Redcurrants and leather with a mushroomy goodness...magnificient! Brilliant wines that hit above their price class. Massive recommendation and good for any occasion. Paired wonderfully with mushroom gnocci. — 2 months ago

From a cool vintage, young, bright, enticing.
Ripe yellow apple, green apricot, some white peach but also camomile, white tea, and white flowery notes on some mineral undertone.
On the palate this is medium bodied, with bright fruity acidity, a bit oxidative, tenclode galore with a hint of herby bitterness.
The is is a gorgeous wine. Not obvious and not everyone’s cup of tea, but what a wine! — 8 months ago
Popped and poured; no formal notes. As a long-time admirer of Laurence's Cuvée Réservée Rouge, this was my first time trying her Blanc. Admittedly, I have often struggled with white wines from the Rhône as they too often lack the acid I want. This is partly why I haven't made it a priority. However, I've had some very impressionable moments with well-aged Hermitage Blanc so I have remained open minded. Which leads me to this bottle of 2021 Cuvée Reservée Blanc; a blend of mostly Clairette with some Grenache blanc, Bourboulenc and a touch of Roussanne. From the very first smell, I was convinced that I had been clearly missing out. Beautifully perfumed with white flowers, cantaloupe, apricot and just a little citrus. This was so fresh, so sexy. It was equally sexy on the palate where all the notes were packaged in the most delightfully silky texture. The finish was long. It should be noted that we paired with rainbow trout, zucchini, summer squash topped with yuzu tobiko. This pairing slapped. Based off this experience, I would drink these now. That's not to say that they will be undrinkable with a few more years of age but I guess, why wait? The freshness is awesome and super compelling right now. — 3 months ago
