2018 Michelas Saint Jemms Crozes-Hermitage Signature Blanc

The 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Signature Blanc checks in as a blend of 65% Marsanne and 35% Roussanne that spent 6-7 months in 400-liter barrels. It has a fresh, crisp bouquet of stone fruits, white flowers, and crushed rocks, with a touch of Burgundian-like minerality (as well as SO2). Fresh, medium-bodied, nicely balanced, and concentrated, give it a year in bottle and it should keep for 4-6.
