(94-96) One of my favorite whites in the world is the Les Granites Blanc from Chapoutier, and the 2016 Saint Joseph Les Granits Blanc is no exception. Scheduled to be bottled just after my tasting, it's a sensationally rich, elegant Marsanne that has tons of buttered citrus, orange blossom, liquid rock and honeysuckle aromas and flavors. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and balanced on the palate, with excellent acidity and a great finish, this is a wine not to be missed.

Ripe honeydew melon, orange, buttered toast and a hint of smoky minerals on the intensely perfumed nose. A hint of leesiness emerges with air and carries onto the palate, complementing concentrated Meyer lemon, pear and toasted brioche flavors. Silky and focused on the impressively long, mineral-laced finish, which leaves candied orange and iodine notes behind. -- Josh Raynolds

The pure Marsanne 2016 Saint Joseph les Granits Blanc is one of the appellation's top white wines. Largely barrel fermented, it boasts scents of toasted grain but also bold tangerine and melon flavors. It's medium to full-bodied with a fabulously long, briny/zesty finish that balances the wine's ample weight. - Joe Czerwinski
