In addition to the fruit opulence of this wine by Adrien Roustan, it shines with the ethereal spice of mandarin zest and slightly nutty notes reminiscent of nutmeg, as well as laurel, white pepper and star anise. Delicate and elegant, yet self-confident and true to its origins.

Color

The wine is bright golden yellow with white-gold reflections clear and shiny in the glass.

Nose

Discreet yellow fruit and ethereal spice meet playfully. Fresh, still slightly green banana, Sharon fruit and kiwi as well as honeydew melon and a faint hint of peach yoghurt provide the wine's fruitiness. In addition to the fruit opulence of this Adrien Roustan wine, it shines with the ethereal spice of tangerine zest and slightly nutty notes reminiscent of nutmeg as well as bay leaf, white pepper and star anise. Delicately smoky accents with a smouldering campfire in the background.

Palate

The 2018 Vacqueyras Blanc from Domaine d'Ouréa also convinces on the palate with its fruit-laden attack and a subsequent wonderfully creamy texture. Spacious in terms of aroma and structure, yet neither deliberate nor overpowering, this marriage of juiciness and palpable yet subtle smokiness through a sensitive use of wood barrels is an unexpectedly lively middleweight from the Vacqueyras.

A wine, in the most positive sense, as unpretentious as it is serious, which quickly leads from one sip to the next.

Delicate and elegant, yet self-confident and true to its origins.
