Bonny Doon Le Cigare Blanc Beeswax Vineyard 2015

SKU 30510


Pale, slightly lime-green color with great freshness in the honeyed nose-lilac, almond blossom and suggestions of lemon curd. Perhaps even a touch of fennel and spearmint, juxtaposed against a quince/Asian pear background. (These descriptors seem to be the calling cards of the Grenache Blanc / Roussanne admixture, at least from the Beeswax Vineyard.) The '15 seems texturally a bit richer than the '14-chalk this up perhaps to the malolactic fermentation; withal, there is an extraordinary length and depth to this wine. This vintage of Cigare Blanc, as with preceding vintages, will continue to improve over the next five years, perhaps much longer. Rich and luscious, there is plenty of glycerol and non-trivial extract present; Le Cigare Blanc remains a great vin de gastronomie, pairing well with rich, buttery dishes.

Wine EnthusiastThis blend of 55% Grenache Blanc, 36% Roussanne and 9% Picpoul starts with broad aromas of Asian pear, tinges of Meyer lemon and tangerine rind and a lot of chalkiness. It's tightly wound on the palate and quite reserved in flavors, until a ripe yellow-pear element starts to come through toward the finish.
