“A blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier, the 2018 IGP Pays d'Oc Little James Basket Press Blanc hints at apple blossom and apricot on the nose, then delivers charming citrus flavors in a medium-bodied format, finishing clean and refreshing.”
“Brilliant gold in color, this fragrant white blend opens with enticing aromas of brioche, white lily and lemon verbena. On the palate, grapefruit and other citrus flavors take an early lead followed by tropical fruit flavors, including pineapple; apricot and peach show up in traces. Tangy citrus flavors return at the exit in the likeness of lemon-lime soda. The acidity is well-managed, and the finish will last long enough to pour another glass. This good value wine would pair well with raw shellfish selections or halibut crudo.” (Very Good)

“There’s a sea breeze of salinity that sails through this wine, lifting the fresh strawberry and peach flavors and drawing out a limey tang. It’s fresh and easy, a pretension-free blend of grenache and cinsault to accompany a charcuterie spread at a picnic.” (Best Buy)
“A clear salmon color in the glass, this value-priced rosé opens with attractive notes of white flowers, strawberry and peach, with the faintest hint of white chocolate in the back. Despite the rich, ripe aromas, the mouthfeel is lightweight and well balanced by ample orangy acidity.” (BEST BUY)
“Vibrant green apple and peach scents show good energy and a hint of succulent herbs. Dry and nervy on the palate, offering bitter citrus pith and orchard fruit flavors that unfurl slowly with aeration. Refreshingly taut and clean, carrying no excess fat and delivering firm closing bite and good persistence.”
“Blending Viogner and Sauvignon to make a white wine isn’t a common practice, but that’s exactly what the crew at Saint Cosme did to make the refreshing Basket Press White. Braced with a zesty green apple quality and crunchy acidity, the wines complement one another well, resulting in a balanced and buttery sweet wine.”
