Domaine Richeaume Tradition Blanc (2014)

Domaine Richeaume Tradition Blanc 2014


Delicate but with substance, this elegant wine is a powerhouse of aromas and flavors. Initial faint whiffs of yeast quickly change to very pleasant floral nose evolving to include distant notes of Bosc pears ever slightly caramelized.  On the palate, the pear notes are amplified and joined by overtones of butter that seemed to vacillate from a velvety feeling to an actual taste of butter, and perhaps a wee bit of citrus.  Minerality noted on the palate as well.   Pleasant tartness on the finish.    This very interesting wine is well structured and balanced. Its pronounced acidity enable a lovely marriage with fish, poultry, or pork in a cream sauce and make it a good candidate for some cellar time. We loved it with a porc gratiné and savoy cabbage with white wine cream sauce,  and can envision a perfect match with mussels and cream.  We all liked this wine very much.
