2011 Nostre Pais Blanc

nostrePicked this up when I needed to fill up a case to get free shipping. It had a lot of glowing press and I didn’t have any other Grenache Blanc-dominant blends.

So, for $15, I figured the chance of disappointment was slim.

And, and, and…it’s a good bottle. Very rich. Full of honey and super ripe apricots. It definitely trends toward the “fat” side of the spectrum, as opposed to crisp, but it’s fat and pretty, like my favorite cat. Not fat and oaky.

Solid buy that should impress the other people at your table and will go with a variety of food.

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
