Robert Parker / Wine Advocate – 94 Points!
Lots of my close friends and associates in the wine business told me I was crazy to make a white wine from the Napa Valley based on ‘Semillon’… a little known, and lesser used grape here in America. They told me not only did Americans not know
what it was … “they can’t pronounce it!” LOL!!
Well, although that proved to be true, that didn’t stop the Chefs, Sommerliers and people everywhere from trying the PALAZZO Cuvée Blanc … and falling in love with it!!! And what’s not to like! Beautiful floral aromatics of white peach, orange peel and honey…Amazing weight and opulence on the pallet…And a rich, complex structure & minerality reminiscent of great Bordeaux Blancs from the Graves and Entre-Deux-Mers regions in France!
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!!!
( Only 18 barrels produced! )
Robert Parker – Review
“The 2013, which got my highest score, is again nearly all Semillon with just a touch of Sauvignon Blanc. It offers notes of orange rind, lemon honey, caramelized grapefruit once again, and a touch of tropical fruit in a lovely, medium to full-bodied, beautifully layered and textured style. This is superb stuff to drink over the next decade or more.”
Drink Date: 2015 – 2030!
