2018 Domaine Melody Crozes-Hermitage Chaos Blanc

This estate continues to impress, and they turned out a stunning 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Chaos Blanc based on 70% Roussanne and 30% Marsanne. Brought up in new and once-used barrels, it has a richer style in its ripe stone fruits, quince, honeysuckle, and spicy oak-driven aromas and flavors. Rich, medium to full-bodied, and beautifully balanced, it's a rock-solid, undeniably impressive white that should keep for upwards of a decade. Bravo!

2018 Domaine Melody Crozes-Hermitage L'Exception Blanc

The 2018 Crozes-Hermitage L'Exception Blanc offers a pure, juicy style as well as classy notes of crushed citrus, white flowers, and honeyed spice. Clean, vibrant and racy, yet with plenty of freshness and vibrancy, it doesn't have the richness nor depth of the Chaos Blanc, but is just a clean, pure expression of fruit. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years.
