French’s Laundry FAVORITE White-by-the-glass

Almost 15 years ago Scott Palazzo was asked by Thomas Keller, “Chef Extraordinaire” and owner of French Laundry and Per Se restaurants to craft a Cab Franc exclusively for him!  That resulted in amazing exposure for this small winery and the rest-as-they-say-is-history.

On the nose this youngster offers up a floral and seductive aromas of tropical fruit (guava, passion fruit, hints of pear Anjou, pink grapefruit and orange blossoms).  On the palate, this wine is round and silky with a very opulent and broad oil texture and weight.  Amazingly balanced with the right touch of zesty acidity and a touch of minerality rarely seen in domestic whites.  The delicious passion fruit with whiffs of nectarine and Meyer lemon tease the palate.  This is an amazingly complex and well-crafted wine with a stunning mouthfeel.  It finishes with excellent richness and weight and complex notes of slate.

I’d call this a White Wine for Cabernet lovers!  Pair this wine with oysters & shrimp salads . Halibut, salmon & chicken dishes to roast pork & suckling pig! A Very versatile Food Wine!

Robert Parker 94+ Points: “The 2013 Palazzo Cuvee Blanc, 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.”

Scott Palazzo in his Semillon vineyard.  Scott is 6′ 3″ and makes these old-vine Semillon vines look more like an apple tree!  Yielding very little, but AMAZING FRUIT!
