Production Notes

The 2014 Tablas Creek Vineyard Grenache Blanc is Tablas Creek’s twelfth bottling of its 100% Grenache Blanc. The Grenache Blanc grape, a little-known but widely-planted Southern Rhone varietal, produces wines with full body, good acidity, and flavors of citrus, anise, and green apple.

We use most of our Grenache Blanc in our Esprit de Tablas Blanc and Cotes de Tablas Blanc each year. However, we have been so pleased by the flavors and intensity of the Grenache Blanc that we try to reserve a small quantity of Grenache Blanc for a single-varietal bottling when we can.

The grapes for our 2014 Grenache Blanc were grown on our certified organic estate vineyard.

The 2014 vintage was our third consecutive drought year and saw our earliest-ever beginning to the growing season.  The summer was warm but without serious heat spikes, and our coolest August in a decade slowed ripening at a critical period. When it warmed back up in September, the fruit tumbled in, and we finished in mid-October, about two weeks earlier than normal.  The result was a vintage with excellent concentration balanced by good freshness, which should be vibrant and powerful young, but with the balance to age.  Our Grenache Blanc was harvested between September 4th and October 1st.

For the varietal Grenache Blanc, we balanced lots that were fermented in stainless steel (for brightness) and foudre (for roundness). These lots were blended in April 2015 and bottled in June 2015.

Tasting Notes

The 2014 Grenache Blanc has an inviting nose of green apple and nuts, sea spray, caramel and crushed rocks. The mouth is rich but buoyed with vibrant acids, showing more fresh apple, lychee, preserved lemon, and a lovely briny note.  The finish is long, smooth, and refreshing, showing lime zest, nectarine, and more minerality.  Drink now and over the next few years.

Introducing the Wines for the 2016 VINsider Wine Club "Collector's Edition" Shipment

June 21, 2016
Each June, I have the pleasure of tasting through library vintages of our Esprit de Beaucastel and Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc to choose the wines for the upcoming VINsider Wine Club Collector's Edition shipment. We created the Collector's Edition version of our VINsider Wine Club back in 2009 to give our biggest fans a chance to both see what our flagship wines were like aged in perfect conditions. Members also get a slightly larger allocation of the current release of Esprits to track as they evolove. This club gives us a chance show off our wines' ageworthiness, and it's been a great success, generating a waiting list each year since we started it.  Read More »
