Awards, Reviews and other Notes

92 pts Wine Advocate April 2017
The 2014 Palladius, which was matured in 30% foudres that have been eschewed for subsequent vintages, has a refined bouquet with light petrol-like scents infusing the stone fruit aromas (peach skin and nectarine). The palate is medium-bodied with a slight viscous entry, the acidity very well pitched with a generous, caressing, lightly honeyed finish. Enjoy this over the next 4-5 years.
96 pts Wine Spectator 5/31/17
This is packed with white peach, yellow apple and mirabelle plum flavors, while fennel, melon rind and salted butter notes streak underneath. The long finish shows blanched almond and quinine details, imparting weight, with a piercing echo at the very end. Chenin Blanc, Grenache Blanc, Clairette Blanche, Viognier, Verdelho, Roussanne, Marsanne, Sémillon, Palomino and Colombard. Drink now through 2024. 700 cases made.



Winemaker Notes

2014 was a beauty in regards to the rare equilibrium between ripeness and acidity. The first juices fermenting in the cellar showed well defined acidity, so we could wait to pick varietals that ripen later. For the first time we introduced a small parcel of the Colombard grape for added acidity & freshness. This parcel came in with a mere 11% alcohol. A very complex & compact wine with huge concentration and freshness.
