    Winemaker's Notes:

    From what far-flung, telic appellation might be dispatched a white cigar? Le Cigare Blanc is the white analogue of Le Cigare Volant, The Flying Cigar, our flagship named in honor of the cigar-shaped alien craft, banned by decree of the village council of Châteauneuf-du-Pape in 1954 from landing in the vineyards thereof. Le Blanc completes the triad of Cigares first sighted in the form Le Cigare Volant and Vin Gris de Cigare®. Le Cigare Blanc is inspired by several of the luxes cuvées of Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc dominated by roussanne, which contributes 97% of this blend. We have supplemented the roussanne with a small but dramatic and richly flavored 3% dollop of Grenache blanc.

    The wine is intensely suggestive of white peach, honeydew, lime blossom, lilac and the stony minerality contributed by an exceedingly far-off hillside. Resistance is futile.
