Tablas Creek Esprit de Tablas Blanc 2019

$130.00 inc. GST

The Tablas Creek Vineyard 2019 Esprit de Tablas Blanc is our flagship white blend, chosen from the top lots of four estate-grown varietals propagated from budwood cuttings from the Château de Beaucastel estate. Roussanne provides the core richness, minerality, and flavors of honey and spice, while Grenache Blanc adds green apple and anise flavors, a lush mouthfeel and bright acids. Picpoul Blanc adds pineapple brightness and saline minerality while Picardan brings elegance.

A lovely, creamy nose of wildflower honey, sweet baking spices, citrus pith, and briny minerality. The mouth is textured and dry, with both the richness and essence of egg custard, flavors of quince and pear, and a long finish with echoing honey, fresh vanilla bean, and limestone mineral notes. A powerful, textured Esprit Blanc that is drinking well now but which we expect will really shine with time in the cellar. Drink over the next two decades.

94 Points
“Vivid yellow. Assertively perfumed orange zest, nectarine and pineapple aromas, along with building floral and smoky mineral flourishes. Shows fine definition and tension on the palate, offering intense citrus and pit fruit flavors braced by a core of juicy acidity. Lingers with superb tenacity on the finish, which strongly echoes the mineral and floral notes.”
