HISTORY
Sharing its name with one of The Family Coppola hideaway hotels in Belize, Blancaneaux–-meaning "white waters" in French––is deservedly Inglenook's preeminent white wine. From its first vintage in 1999 through to its 2002 vintage, Blancaneaux used to incorporate the features of Chardonnay along with three varietals of the Rhône Valley––Viognier, Roussanne, and Marsanne–-but since 2003 the blend consists solely of those three Rhône varietals in proportions that best suit the overall expression. Like Rubicon, Blancaneaux doesn't describe any one grape personality but speaks volumes about the Inglenook terroir that contributes to its range of nuanced flavors, dense palate, and mix of aromatic interests.

VINTAGE
Leading into the 2019 growing season, winter rains were heavier than average and continued into the early spring. The resulting ambient moisture paved the way for a well-timed bloom. A warm summer, followed by moderate weather conditions from August through the beginning of September, set the stage for even ripening and a successful harvest of our white Rhône varieties.

TASTING NOTES
The 2019 Blancaneaux is a truly elegant wine with magnificent aromatic complexity. While certainly floral, with delicate hints of rose and lime blossom, there are clear summer fruit notes of pear, apricot, lychee and honeydew. Round, fresh and luxurious on the palate, the wine has a long, graceful finish. It will continue to provide optimum enjoyment for at least the next six years.
