2014 DAOU CHEMIN DE FLEURS
95 Points, Connoisseur's Guide to California Wine
White Rhone Blend
Seven months in 35% new French oak
A wonderful example of what can be achieved crafting a wine using three noble and uniquely individual grape varieties. The bright fruit aromatics of Grenache Blanc, the rich and voluptuous character of Viognier, and the mysterious, mischievous Roussanne are like the primary colors on a master’s canvas. Layers of tropical fruits, melon and fragrant blossoms engage the senses. Flavors of mango and papaya, with citrus notes and pineapple, merge seamlessly with honeysuckle and allspice accents. Luscious and velvety, sophisticated yet friendly, this wine has depth and personality and a persistent, heady finish of clover honey, ginger and cinnamon.
48% Grenache Blanc, 32% Roussanne, 20% Viognier
