2017 Chaleur Blanc
94 Points - Wine Enthusiast Cellar Selection!
The 2017 Chaleur Blanc introduces itself with earthy aromas of brioche and sous bois, complimented by bright apricot and peach, all with a hint of exotic tropical fruit. This golden sunlight-colored wine realizes amazing tension between bright acidity and palate weight, offering a seamless backdrop for diverse flavors of fresh straw, guava, coconut flakes and lemon zest.
"DeLille Cellars Chaleur Blanc is often a benchmark for white wines in Washington, and the winery’s 2017 vintage of this wine certainly sets a standard. It’s one of the best white wines I’ve ever had from Washington and is certainly the highest scoring white I’ve reviewed in my six-plus years at Wine Enthusiast." - Sean Sullivan, Wine Enthusiast
