Luc Baudet Côtes Du Rhône “Rive Droite” Blanc 2017
A reflection of its terroir
A full-bodied white wine from Côtes du Rhône, France, this Luc Baudet offering is fresh and balanced, with beautiful subtle notes.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Made with Grenache Blanc and Roussanne grape varietals, the Luc Baudet Côtes du Rhône “Rive Droite” Blanc is one that is marked by the rounded pebbles of its terroir. It is full-bodied and refreshing, and goes down easy.
This white wine has notes of white fruits and good minerality, with fresh hints of pear and lime.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
It also goes brilliantly with rich fish dishes, like a garlic butter baked salmon with asparagus, or an easy tuna pasta with olives. Try it, too, with pork or poultry. It will be good with pork chops, slow-cooked pulled pork, and chicken tetrazzini.
BETWEEN LAND AND SEA
Between hundred-year-old olive trees and stately oak trees will you find Le Clos des Centenaires. With nature on their side—climate, deep soils, pebbles formed by the Rhône, sands, and clay, the vines that take root and grow are powerful and complex. They give grapes of magnificent quality, like delicate gifts as thanks for its careful and respectful cultivation.
These grapes are then meticulously chosen to create wines that reflect the splendor of its surroundings, and the passion of its makers.
