91pointsFrançois Villard 2017 Mairlant (Saint-Joseph)

Whispers of vanilla, brioche and cashew—reminders of a long, gentle maturation in oak—accent ripe yellow apple and pear in this moderately full-bodied, elegant white. A 50-50 blend of Marsanne and Roussanne, it's anchored by zesty grapefruit acidity and a long, lean mineral finish. It drinks well now but should hold through 2027. Anna Lee C. Iijima
