Tasting My First White Wine From Domaine de Mourchon


You will find tastings notes about Domaine de Mourchon throughout this blog.  Despite a good familiarity with this domain I had never tasted their white wine until the other week.  This bottle of 2010 La Source was pretty good!  This wine was sampled at MacArthur Beverages.

2010 Domaine Mourchon, La Source, Cotes du Rhone –
This wine is a blend of 55% Viognier, 25% Roussanne, and 20% Clairette and Bourboulenc sourced from 25-30 year old vines.  Alcohol 13%.  The color was a very light straw.  The light nose was floral with white fruit and honeysuckle.  The mouth follows the nose revealing white and stone fruits that have some weight.  There was fresh acidity throughout in this focused, clean, stone accented wine.  The flavors were mildly ripe with a touch of spice in the finish and decent grip.  It became chiseled with air.  *** Now-2014.
