Roussanne, Northern Rhône, France

Like when you find out that your roommate is secretly the Princess of Monaco! An incredibly rare white jewel from Jean-Louis Chave, a 16th-generation (!) winemaking legend of the Northern Rhône. While this region’s reds are better-known, widely coveted and incredibly expensive, northern Rhône whites are not to be missed, remarkable in their sheer hubris for texture, aromatics and minerality.

Roussanne, Northern Rhône, France

Like when you find out that your roommate is secretly the Princess of Monaco! An incredibly rare white jewel from Jean-Louis Chave, a 16th-generation (!) winemaking legend of the Northern Rhône. While this region’s reds are better-known, widely coveted and incredibly expensive, northern Rhône whites are not to be missed, remarkable in their sheer hubris for texture, aromatics and minerality. Circa is one of Jean Louis' négociant wines under his Sélection label, with fruit farmed from the four-walled ‘Clos Forentin’ vineyard in Mauves, producing a uniquely mineral-driven twist on the traditionally plush white Hermitage. Fermented and aged in barrel for 14 months, less than 400 cases of this are made every year. Candied fig on a perfect white doily, lemon curd, raw honeycomb, pine nut custard, carnival apple, ginger syrup, white balsamic, almond oil & rock sugar with the telltale click-clack of high-heeled acid in a white marble lobby. Pair with burrata for breakfast in an all-white suit like you’re Celine Dion.
