Pale yellow coloured with attractive brightness. Aromatic nose of white flowers, hawthorn and acacia, with a delicate woody final note. Supple and well-rounded with an harmonious fresh finish.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2016) - 90 pts

A 50-50 blend of Marsanne and Roussanne from Chassis, in the heart of the appellation, the 2016 Crozes Hermitage Domaine Mule Blanche is forward and fresh, marked by toasted-grain notes and pineapple fruit. There’s ample weight and concentration in this medium-bodied white, which should live a reasonable length of time for a white Crozes.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2011) - 90 pts

Mar/Apr 13 by Josh Raynolds - Light gold. High-pitched, mineral-accented aromas of pear and lemon curd, with a stony accent and a touch of beeswax. Sappy and penetrating, with good lift to its juicy citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with very good clarity, focus and cut. The 2010 bottling of this wine has begun to shut down but displays deeply pitched citrus and pit fruit character and hints of honeysuckle, chamomile and ginger. A strong mineral quality adds grip and precision and bodes very well for aging. I probably underrated it last year.

50% Marsanne, 50% Roussanne. Spicy oak on the nose, crisp apple fruit beneath. Retains freshness on the finish – good, reliable, typical. (RH)


Wine Spectator (2010) - 90 pts

Issue: Feb 29, 2012 - Lush, with flattering Cavaillon melon, Fuji apple and piecrust notes kept lively through the finish with an elegant chamomile note. Drink now through 2014. ?JM

Equal parts marsanne and roussanne. This has a very fresh lemon, pear and apple fruit nose with a powerful, textural and commanding palate. There is a pleasing freshness to this with the marsanne driving the wine. Drink now.


Wine Enthusiast (2010) - 92 pts

This blend of Marsanne and Roussanne comes across as something of a hybrid between Hermitage and Burgundy. It has grilled peach, citrus and smoke notes, ample weight and a long, hazelnut-tinged finish. Drink it over the next 6–8 years. J.C. (2/1/2013)
