The new vintage of PALAZZO 2012 Cuvée Blanc is once again inspired by the great Bordeaux Blancs of France. It’s a beautifully balanced & elegant food wine… made predominately from the wonderfully exotic & aromatic Semillon grape, with just a touch of Sauvignon Blanc blended in for finesse & structure. The nose is floral & seductive with intense tropical aromas of guava & passion fruit, along with hints of pear & pink grapefruit, and a touch of spearmint laced throughout. On the palate the wine is rich & opulent, with a broad oily texture and weight that gives way to bright, zesty acidity, giving the wine its beautifully balanced mouth-feel! The finish is rich & weighty, complex and wonderfully long, … especially for a white wine! A superior food wine to be enjoyed!
NOTE: Do not over chill or put this wine in the refrigerator! It will close down the wine & crush ALL of the beautiful floral aromatics & the richness & weight of the mouthfeel. No colder than “cellar temp”, just treat it like a great bottle of Red Wine. The French Laundry ‘decants’ my Cuvée Blanc table-side, allowing the wine to ‘open up and show all it’s complexity’! Try decanting it at home … you’ll be AMAZED!!!

Robert Parker – Review
“The 2012 Cuvée Blanc has an almost identical blend of 95% Semillon and 5% Sauvignon Blanc. Showing hints of fig, tangerine oil, lemon zest and again caramelized grapefruit and other assorted citrus, this is a beautifully aromatic wine with medium to full-bodied flavors. It is dry, lusty, and probably an ideal accompaniment to intensely flavored fish and poultry dishes, given its intensity. ”
