Sans Liège “Côtes du Coast” bottle

Sans Liège “Côtes du Coast”

Rhône-Style White, 2017

Though near each other, Paso Robles and Santa Barbara are Mars and Venus to most winemakers—incompatible entities. Curt Schalchlin, however, believes the two shine brighter when their grapes are blended. In France’s Rhône Valley, even the tastiest blends get the generic label Côtes du Rhône; Côtes du Coast, by contrast, is all about elevating blends’ status through careful grape selection and innovative winemaking techniques. The result is otherworldly deliciousness.

Profile

Sans Liège “Côtes du Coast” White is an American original. The floral Viognier, Roussanne and Marsanne were fermented in oak barrels to build complexity, with the Grenache Blanc fermented in stainless steel to impart a zippy freshness.

Pairing

Intensely flavored, aromatic wines are as delightful to smell as they are to drink. These wines—such as Gewürztraminer, Viognier and some Rieslings—are naturally tasty with rustic fare from the places in Europe where the grapes grow, but they’re also a surefire hit with spicy, fragrant dishes like Thai green curry.

TASTING TIP

Sniff for a subtle note of anise, which is a character commonly associated with the Marsanne grape. Jasmine and other white flowers are the signature of Viognier.

Pour a light, aromatic white that won't overpower the fish, and will help the summer-veggie flavors pop.

Where there's saffron, an intensely aromatic white is always a great choice. Let the fragrant fiesta begin.

An aromatic white is always the right choice with a fragrant, Indian-style dish. This wine's body will to match the sauce, too.

A light, summer Italian-style dish is always delightful with an aromatic white. It'll play very nicely with the basil pesto.

The dish brings together saltiness, sweet summer flavors, and acidity, and an aromatic white brings it all into harmony.

An aromatic white help will help lift this dish's bright, summer flavors, without overpowering them.

More About The Wine

California’s Central Coast appellation essentially reaches from San Francisco to Los Angeles, covering multiple distinct regions. This wine’s Viognier and Marsanne grapes are from Santa Barbara’s famous, cool-climate Bien Nacido Vineyard. The Grenache Blanc and Roussanne are from a high-elevation, sun-drenched estate in Paso Robles, which gives the wine its ripe-fruit flavors.

DID YOU KNOW?

Viognier grows in France’s northern Rhône, while Marsanne, Roussanne and Grenache Blanc grow in the south. Northern and southern varieties are seldom blended in Côtes du Rhône whites.
