cave de rasteau

Who would have thought? It Viguiers.

Cave de Rasteau 2005 Côtes-du-Rhône Blanc “Les Viguiers” (Rhône) – A bit steamy, but otherwise fine (and excess heat is certainly no rare flaw in Rhône whites), showing nut oil and old stone fruit…emphasis on the stone more than the fruit…with minor acidity and a generally structureless finish. This note sounds more negative than the wine deserves. Again: it was fine, as such things go. But haters of white Rhônes (and they’re definitely out there) will find nothing here to change their minds. (9/07)
