The Domaine du Monteillet Saint-Joseph Blanc is an exquisitely crafted white wine from France's eminent Rhône Valley. This luxurious vino boasts a radiant golden hue and a compelling bouquet of ripe peaches, apricots, and delicate floral notes. On the palate, it showcases striking depth, characterised by seductive stone fruit flavours, balanced acidity and a dash of minerality. Its medium-bodied nature is infused with a subtle creaminess, leading to a persistent, harmonious finish. This wine represents an unreserved expression of the terroir – a captivating blend of elegance, complexity, and freshness that distinguishes itself as a sterling example of refinement.
Medium-bodied northern Rhone white, more on the texture than the aromatic fruit. Think lanolin, then add beeswax and marzipan and maybe a touch of pear.
