This wine from Collioure in the Languedoc was tasted after the bad experience with Hermitage. It was a welcome relief. 90% Grenache Gris and 10% Grenache Blanc – and some oak fermentation – combined to make a wine that was rich, full in flavour and possessing a balancing acidity. Light yellow lemon in colour and the nose being citrus made the whole drinking experience a delight – if not a particularly complex one. At £25, it was probably slightly overpriced, but certainly better value than the preceding Hermitage. We’d tried the red version some time ago (pre-blog, I think) and were more impressed by that but both were good wines.
