1999 Blanc Bottle

1999 Blanc

The Tablas Creek Vineyard 1999 Blanc is an estate-bottled blend of five traditional white Rhone grape varieties: Roussanne, Viognier, Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, and Rolle (also known as Vermentino). All grapes were grown on Tablas Creek's organically farmed estate.

Tasting Notes

The color is a pale straw-gold. The nose is of rose petals and ripe peaches. There is a big, intense, rich palate with spicy ripe fruit and a hint of cinnamon. This is a round and luscious wine with a great depth and a fine long finish.

Production Notes

After years of searching, Robert Haas (Vineyard Brands) and the Perrins (Château de Beaucastel) found the perfect site for their new estate in the steep and stony hills west of Paso Robles. Tablas Creek Vineyard was conceived with vine selections similar to Beaucastel. Organic farming techniques in the vineyard allow our grapes to be the purest expression of the warm climate and the calcareous clay soils in which they grow. Fermenting with native yeasts and selective blending of the varietals, as practiced by Beaucastel for 150 years, allow the wine to best express its rich and elegant aesthetic qualities. We have left no stone unturned in our effort to make Tablas Blanc a forceful statement of its outstanding terroir.

Tablas Blanc is estate bottled from vines grown on the Tablas Creek Vineyard Estate, cultivated without the use of herbicides or systemic pesticides. Only hand hoeing, cover crops , mulch, scorching and mowing are used for weed control. Natural predatory insects, “Bordeaux Mixture” and sulfur control pests and fungi.
