Natalie's Score: 87/100

A pleasant, easy-going sipper with notes of peach and pear. This medium-bodied southern French white wine is a blend of Grenache Blanc and Viognier grapes, and undergoes partial barrel aging. Serve well-chilled as an aperitif or companion to seafood.

Grenache Blanc Viognier food pairings: crab cakes, pan-fried panfish, sautéed sea scallops, grilled chicken.

Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Apples and pear on the nose with ripe flavors of melon, pineapple and green apple. The finish lingers with green apple and lemon. Great value!
From the Pays D'oc wine region, Hauts De Janeil (2016) is Grenache Blanc and Viognier white wine blend. Plushy pear, peach and tropical fruits on the palate finishing off bright and juicy. Great value under $20. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
