2016 Ventoux Blanc "Autan" (Aureto)

Aureto, Ventoux Blanc "Autan", Southern Rhone, France 2016

{biodynamic} 61% Roussanne, 21% Clairette, 9% Marsanne, 9% Grenache Blanc

HONEYDEW & APRICOT, RUBRUM LILY, SAKE-LIKE WAXINESS

From Ventoux, where the Southern Rhone and Provence collide, this white blend brings together a veritable who’s who of white Rhone varieties. While Viognier remains absent, an intensely tropical assortment of fruit essences leads the way to exotic floral nuances that wouldn’t be out of place in Condrieu. The overall impression, however, is a bit riper and more Mediterranean - both elegant and generously fun. Aureto prides itself on the estate's typical (yet exceptional) terroir, the impressive knack possessed by young vigneron and enologist Aurélie Julien, and the cutting-edge techniques employed in the cellar.

Serving Suggestion: Baked monkfish & couscous w saffron, raisins, zucchini, & turmeric.
