Jeb Dunnuck 93 Points – Burgundian notes of crushed citrus, white flowers, salty minerality, orange pith, and honeysuckle all emerge from the 2018 Crozes-Hermitage Domaine Mule Blanche, and it’s fresh, medium to full-bodied, concentrated and elegant on the palate.
James Suckling 91 Points – Attractive white-peach, banana and melon aromas with a sleek, fresh and fleshy feel to the palate. Supple, long and elegant with apples, papaya and melon in abundance. Good weight and very well balanced. Drink now.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 90 Points – Sourced from Les Chassis near Domaine de Thalabert, the 2018 Crozes Hermitage Mule Blanche (Domaine) is a 50-50 blend of Marsanne and Roussanne. The nose features crushed stone, toasted marshmallow, pear and melon scents, while the medium to full-bodied palate is round without being expansive and crisp without being edgy. While it’s not my favorite of the white wines this vintage, it’s still a very solid effort.
