Domaine du Monteillet (Stephane Montez) 2016 "Le Blanc d'en Face", VDP Rhone Valley, France

Located in Condrieu, high up on a gorgeous west-facing slope overlooking the Rhône River, this superb estate is managed by the young and charismatic Stéphane Montez, the fourth generation of his family to run the estate.  

Winemaker: Stephane Montez

Farming: Sustainable

Varieties: 60% Jacquère, 40% Chardonnay

Terroir: Located on the left bank opposite the Estate on rolled pebbles. Schist soils.

VINIFICATION: Hand harvested. Two sortings occur before fermentation: one in the vineyard, and one in the cellar. All grapes are destemmed. Tank fermentation. 10 months aging in French oak barrels.

TASTING NOTES: An energetic but textural wine, this medium bodied white has concentrated notes of fresh quince, tart yellow apple skin, crushed white stones and a finish reminiscent of yellow flowers and raw almonds.
