The 2018 Cairanne L'Estevenas Blanc from Alary is a beauty and well worth seeking out for readers. A blend of 60% Clairette and 40% Roussanne, it offers beautiful white peach and caramelized pineapple notes to go with a kiss of minerality on the palate. Fresh, focused, and concentrated, it’s going to be an age worthy white that will benefit from a year in bottle and keep for 7-8 years or more.

The 2018 Cairanne Blanc l’Estevenas is a blend of 50% Clairette, 40% Roussanne and 10% Bourboulenc; 10% went into used demi-muids, while the rest was made in stainless steel. There's a hint of honey on the nose, accenting pineapple and lime notes. The wine is medium to full-bodied yet comes across as tight and crisp, with just a touch of silkiness to the texture.
