2021 Esprit de Tablas Blanc: #51 on Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 of 2023

Wine Enthusiast Top 100 of 2023

We were excited to learn that our 2021 Esprit de Tablas Blanc was named #51 on Wine Enthusiast's "Top 100 wines of 2023"! This year, Wine Enthusiast editors blind-tasted more than 23,000 bottles and select their Top 100. Their criteria? These were "not simply the highest scoring bottles, nor are they the most expensive—these are wines that opened our reviewers’ eyes and stimulated their imaginations."

Of the 2021 Esprit Blanc, they say:

As the importer of so many Rhône varieties, it's no surprise that Tablas Creek manages blends like few other domestic producers. This combination of 70% Roussanne, 17% Picpoul Blanc, 10% Grenache, 2% Bourboulenc and 1% Clairette Blanche shows clean nectarine and apricot aromas on the nose, with a light nuttiness. The palate's chalky texture offers creamy flavors of cashew milk and apple blossoms.
