94 Point Roussanne $20

This has always been a favorite, and the new vintage is off the charts....

2015 Lancyre Roussanne....$19.99
Lancyre's Roussanne is a treasure hidden among a portfolio focused on reds. Made mostly from roussanne, with about 10 percent each viognier and marsanne, it's grown in the north of Pic St-Loup, on a mix of clay and limestone. In 2015, the wine channels the warmth of the appellationin its deep yellow hue and tropical fruit scents, then does a stunning 180, focusingthe flavors on stones and savory herbs. The richness remains in the nut-oil texture, butit's clean and light, allowing the mineral flavors to shine. This wine lasts for days openin the fridge, realizing more detail with every meal. Accessible now, if you put it away foranother five years it will continue to develop a deeper, nuttier complexity.
Rated 94/100 Wine and Spirits Magazine
