2017 Domaine des Remizières "Cuvée Christophe" Crozes-Hermitage Blanc

SKU #1441551 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Barrel fermented in 40% new oak, the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Blanc Cuvee Christophe is a blend of 85% Marsanne and 15% Roussanne. Classy, subtle notes of pencil shavings highlight melon and pear notes in this medium-bodied, succulent wine. It shows ample concentration, a fine, silky texture and finishes with elegant persistence. Lovely stuff. (JC)  (12/2018)

91 points Wine Spectator

 A ripe, plump style, with a warm brioche note around a core of creamed melon and peach flavors. Offers a lightly toasty hint through the finish. A crowd-pleasing style. (JM)  (11/2018)

90 points Jeb Dunnuck

 The 2017 Crozes Hermitage Cuvée Christophe Blanc checks in as a blend of 85% Marsanne and 15% Roussanne that was aged in 30% new French oak, with the balance in once-used barrels. It offers some spiced orchard fruits, honeyed minerality, hints of brioche, and minerality. With medium-bodied richness, some background oak, and good acidity, it's one of the more backward whites in the vintage and will benefit from another year in bottle. 90+  (12/2018)

K&L Notes

Domaine des Remizieres are 4th generation winemakers that originally sold grapes to the local cooperative. After completing their winery in 1974, the family began production at their new property. The estate is now managed by Phillipe Desmeures, his daughter Emilie, and son Christophe. They have expanded to 30 ha with vineyards in Crozes-Hermitage, Saint-Joseph, and Hermitage. The Cuvee Christophe is named for son Christophe. The blanc is a blend of 85% Marsanne and 15% Roussanne aged in a mix of new and used barrique. It captures the essence of rich full bodied whites from the region.

Desmeures family have become one of my absolute favorite wine producers in Northern Rhone region. This eloquent Rhone Blanc is nutty, creamy balanced and amazing. It has the perfect weight and structure filled with stone fruit and a touch of acidity. It combines of 85% Marsanne and 15% Roussane and It is a delight.
