”This blend of 50% Clairette Blanche and 50% Grenache Blanc feels like a lesson how these varieties should be used. Tightly wound aromas of lychee and coconut play against a chalky backdrop on the nose. The palate is loaded with a grippy texture that opens toward white melon and sharp lime flavors.”
93 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
“A blend of 50% Clairette Blanche and 50% Grenache Blanc, the 2021 Beautiful Earth White is scented of golden apples, pears and quince, plus touches of baker’s yeast, beeswax, lime peel and acacia. The medium-bodied palate is expansive and satiny with concentrated layers of savory fruit and a long, refreshing finish.”

“Lush and vibrant, with delicately multilayered apricot, orange peel and blanched almond flavors that finish with a crisp, savory accent. Clairette Blanche and Grenache Blanc.”
