Rating: ***+ Domaine de la Cessane Marsanne/Viognier, France, 2009 - Wine Review

Find prices and retail availability for Marsanne/Viognier blends.

Initial review, by way of background: This is Domaine de la Cessane Marsanne/Viognier, France, 2009.

In the glass: Light golden.

On the nose: Poured cool with a brief decant and swirled vigorously, this white blend shows a sandiness and gentle perfumed nature.

On the palate: The primary elements on the palate are sleek mineral and fragrant earthy fruit.

In summary: Overall, compelling but gentle. Rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale, with a plus for sophistication.
