Off Topic: Cave de Tain Premiére Note Marsanne Collines Rhodaniennes 2015 – $$
An offering from Michael at Wineseeker to offset the Marsanne I bought a wee while back that I found oxidised and unappetising. This is made in a fruitier and more approachable style, and should be a good reflection of the grape.
13% alc. Pale greenish gold colour.
Clean and clear aromas of golden stonefruit and clover honey. Bready. No oak.
Lean fruit up front. Fresh. A bitter note on the middle palate, and finishes with a strong apple flavour. Not a juicy wine – somewhat flat, leafy and short.
Commended 85 points
