The selections parcellaires whites tasted include the 2009 St.-Joseph Les Granits Blanc (789 cases) which may be the "best buy" of all these selections parcellaires. This 100% Marsanne cuvee exhibits an amazing honeyed orange marmalade character intermixed with notions of crushed rocks spring flowers quince and white currants. Full-bodied and unctuously textured yet remarkably fresh and vibrant it should drink nicely for 15-20 years.

Still tight with blanched almond and pear skin notes holding the core of green fig white peach and salted butter at bay for now. The long finish featuring mineral and floral notes just sails on with terrific intensity... Still tight with blanched almond and pear skin notes holding the core of green fig white peach and salted butter at bay for now. The long finish featuring mineral and floral notes just sails on with terrific intensity. Best from 2014 through 2024. -J.M.

Intriguing aromas of poached pear orange pith white flowers and iodine with a smoky overtone. Expansive orchard fruit flavors stain the palate and pick up spice and smoky mineral qualities with air. The iodine and floral notes linger on a long penetrating finish. This is already showing real complexity. -Josh Raynolds

100% marsanne. Pale straw-gold in color the aromas are forward and ripe with hints of fruit cocktail and other tropcial fruit flavors along with an intriguing suggestion of fresh talc underneath. This is quite exotic now... 100% marsanne. Pale straw-gold in color the aromas are forward and ripe with hints of fruit cocktail and other tropcial fruit flavors along with an intriguing suggestion of fresh talc underneath. This is quite exotic now with the medium to medium-full bodied fruit weight contributing to a long lingering finish mingling with some mineral components. Tasted as a barrel sample three months before release.
