2017 Blancaneaux 750ML

2017 Blancaneaux shows an intricate array of aromas, ranging from attractive floral scents of jasmine and acacia to fruitiness 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.

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..


Rainfall in winter and spring was bountiful, totaling nearly 50 inches. While our white Rhône varieties bloomed relatively late, periods of considerable summer heat accelerated ripeness, leading to a normal harvest schedule. The Viognier blocks were low-yielding, which allowed them to ripen on time with superb concentration. All fruit for the 2017 Blancaneaux was harvested from August 26th through the first week of September.
