The 2016 J.L. Chave "Circa" is a white wine made from Roussanne grapes. Generously aromatic, with notes of peaches, honeysuckle, apricot jam, and yellow apple there is a lot going on in this glass! The abundance of flavor and rich texture of this wine are kept in check by acidity not often found in Rhone whites, along with a tense minerality that contributes to the complexity of the wine.
