    Winemaker's Notes:

    The pale yellow color tinted in green announces a wine with a great deal of freshness and purity. The complex nose reveals floral and mineral notes with accents of fresh citrus fruits. Lively and fresh, the aromas of flowers and white fruits, blends with flint. The very soft finish evinces a great deal of minerality.

    90% Grenache Blanc, 5% Roussanne, 5% Viognier

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Nostre Pais Blanc is a blend of 80% Grenache blanc and the rest equal parts Roussanne and Viognier, aged on its lees for six months, with some barrel fermentation but limited exposure to oak. It comes across as a top-flight white Chateauneuf du Pape rather than a less expensive Costieres de Nimes. Light gold in color, with an extraordinary nose of vivid honeysuckle, candle wax, marmalade and tropical fruit, the wine is elegant, has good acidity, and wonderful freshness, but a surprisingly intense, full-bodied mouthfeel. Following a tasting, I had this wine with Maryland soft shell crabs, and it was an exquisite marriage. Drink it over the next year.

    This starts plump, displaying a salted butter and creamed melon profile, but picks up mouthwatering yellow apple and verbena notes along the way for freshness and length. Very tasty. Drink now through 2013. 3,000 cases imported.

    Kenneth C. Bardach (7/25/2012)
    My wife, who lived in France for 30+ years and who knows and loves wines, found this Pais White 2010 a truely lovey wine. Warm, rich taste; full but not overly sweet and fruity; beautiful color. It goes nicely with fish and poultry, but it drinks perfectly before dinner. This is our second order.
