I loved the 2017 Côtes du Roussillon Centenaire from Jean-Marc. This smoking good white is 80% Grenache Blanc (and Grenache Gris) and 20% Roussanne brought up in 30% new barrels. It comes from older vines planted next to the Mediterranean and offers lots of tart citrus, mint, white grapefruit, and ample salty minerality. It’s fresh, crisp, and undeniably delicious. I’m sure it will evolve well, but there’s no need to delay gratification.
