Domaine De Clairac Marsanne 2003 wine review by (PB)
We popped into (NW's) on our way back from Los Angeles and he served up this white with some appetizers. I have had very few Marsanne's (Marsanne is the grape type) but this one stands out and was delightful.
It was pale golden in the glass with an interesting fragrance with a unique sweet rye bread aroma.
Front palate is floral with off dry fruit that hard to pin down a description but it was really very nice. there was a touch of vanilla rear palate with a gentle vanilla finish.
This is very well made an unique. I liked it and was a nice change. (Reference price--$17) Raise a glass.
