Barou 2011 Vin de Pays Collines Rhodanien Marsanne
The Barou family family makes delicious wines, and grows cherries and apricots, on their mixed-use organic estate in the hills around Saint-Joseph and Condrieu. Their 2011 Vin de Pays Marsanne is a sensational value! Beautiful aromas of lemon, exotic fruits, butter and hay with a hint of caramel. The palate is rich and ripe but with good acidity, showing apricot, pear and citrus fruits with a bit of smoky minerality in the finish. Really a lovely wine that will compliment full-flavored fish and poultry dishes and it's and amazing bargain at $11.99!
