2017 Estate Blancaneaux

Produced since 1999 as a partner to Rubicon, Inglenook’s premier red wine, Blancaneaux is a blend of three estate-grown white Rhône varieties. The Marsanne and Roussanne contribute body and minerality, while the Viognier adds an intense bouquet of tropical fruits. These varieties are grown in vineyard blocks that enjoy full morning sun, but are in the full shadow of Mount St. John by mid-afternoon.

WINEMAKER’S TASTING NOTES

2017 Blancaneaux shows an intricate array of aromas, ranging from attractive floral scents of jasmine and acacia, to fruit, in the form of white peach and ripe Meyer lemon zest. While its structure is round and medium-bodied, the wine retains compelling freshness as it evolves throughout an extended finish.
