M. Chapoutier really needs no introduction, and by the look (and taste) of this sensational white bolt of liquid white lightning, let’s chalk up another win for this legend.
And his 2017 Petite Ruche Blanc is your passport to liquid heaven!
We absolutely love Marsanne… there’s something so downright decadent about this grape and how it showcases its style perfectly in these lovely Rhone whites. Expressive notes of green apple, white flowers, hints of lanolin, quince, candied orange and luscious exotic tones make this DOUBLE 90-POINT elixir an absolute thing of beauty.
Crozes Hermitage is one of the regions that sometimes gets lost in the proverbial north Rhone shuffle, but it should always have a place in your heart when you’re seeking out value from some of the world’s best. The fruit for this wine is grown in a flowing sea of alluvial deposits and gravel which adds a mineral-laced backbone that gives you everything you could want in a summertime white from one of the most pedigreed producers on the planet!
Ruche, which is hive in French, is the perfect name for this honeypot of a find that’ll have you licking your lips with delight with every sip. Once you pop the cork, your senses will be buzzing and they won’t stop ‘til you hit the bottom of the bottle.
M. Chapoutier, killer Marsanne, love from the critics and a price that can’t be beat!
What are you waiting for?

Medium gold-colored, the 2017 Crozes Hermitage La Petite Ruche Blanc (100% Marsanne) gives up lots of honeyed citrus and white flower notes, with more orange and quince notes with time in the glass. It's another medium-bodied, rounded, fleshy, beautifully textured example of this great variety that’s well worth seeking out.
