2009 Jaboulet Parallele 45 Cotes du Rhone Blanc $13
CDR Blanc is a rarity in the US - and that's a shame as this wine proves. Fresh, but substantive, it's Grenache Blanc (50%) and Viognier (20%) shine through while the Marsanne (20%) adds a punch of credibility, if not seriousness to this terrific bargain intro to CDRB's. Food or not, this one's good to go. Despite being a rarity, this particular one should be relatively easy to find.
