Wine Advocate Review
Rated 93
Composed of 55% Roussanne, 28% Grenache Blanc and 17% Picpoul Blanc, the 2015 Esprit Blanc de Tablas is a bit of an animal - in the best possible way! It opens with a nose of charcuterie, salted nuts and dried herbs over a core of lemon curd, fresh peaches and hay. The medium-bodied palate delivers loads of savory layers, matched by a lively backbone and satiny texture, finishing long with herb and nut layers. 1,875 cases were made. This should age beautifully over the next ten years! Drink 2017-2027.

Brilliant yellow. An intensely perfumed bouquet displays mineral-accented orange, pear and jasmine scents, along with a deeper suggestion of honey. Energetic citrus and orchard fruit flavors coat the palate and show excellent clarity. A suave floral nuance emerges steadily as the wine opens up. Impressively concentrated yet nervy; the very long, focused finish features suave, lingering florality. (Josh Raynolds)

Wine Tasting Notes
The Esprit de Tablas Blanc is a classic Esprit Blanc, with aromatics dominated by non-fruit descriptors: mineral, sea spray, grilled bread and a hint of non-toasted oak. The mouth is dramatically rich and broad, with the vintage's acidity showing in the front palate, rich Roussanne in the mid-palate, and a hint of tannin from the Grenache Blanc on the long, nutty finish. A fascinating combination of rich and very dry. Still a baby, this is a serious white to age for up to 15 years or more.
