NEW! Cotes du Rhone Blanc 'Inopia', Rotem & Mounir Saouma, France 2015

24.50

It’s a bit of an ask expecting folk to spend £24.50 on a white Cotes du Rhone, but there is a lot more to this than meets the eye, not just in terms of flavour (it’s a sort of Leflaive vs Condrieu mash-up), but when we looked into it a bit further, having tasted it ‘blind’ among hundreds of others without knowing anything about it, it turns out that it is made by the owners of Lucien Le Moine, the Burgundy micro-negociant. It’s a blend of Roussanne, Grenache, Marsanne, Clairette and Viognier, but amidst the stone fruit and honeysuckle flavours that you would expect from that grape cocktail, there is also some of the struck match/gun flint thing of top notch white Burgundy. I'm underselling it, because we don't have a lot and I want it to go to people who don't need hyperbole to be convinced. You will not be disappointed.
