    Martine Vandre’s white Crozes is made from classic mix of 25 year old marsanne and roussanne aged in two thirds cuve and one third oak (three to eight year old barrels). It offers hints of apricot, quince and mango on the nose, which follow through on the palate, where the controlling influence from limestone helps retain a freshness and dynamism. For drinking now to 2018.
