2009 Domaine de Lancyre Roussanne.....$17.99
Domaine de Lancyre continues to make exceptional red wines and white wines. It is tough to find a better estate in Pic St. Loup than Lancyre. Their only white is a 90% Roussanne with 10% Viognier blend that is stunning. The 2008 scored 91 from The Wine Advocate, it was exceptional, but the 2009 might even surpass that wine. You can get the hints of Viognier on the nose in the form of apricots and peaches. The palate is very zesty, with a great minerality and is rounded with fruits like limes and other citrus. It is very refreshing and can actually develop and age for 4-5 years. Try this wine with some great seafood or lighter pasta dishes with some mushrooms.
