Vinous 90 points - (62% grenache blanc and 38% roussanne): Light yellow. Ginger, lemon rind, fresh orchard fruits and herbs on the pungent, incisive nose. Juicy and refreshingly bitter on the palate, offering tangy green apple and Meyer lemon flavors, along with elements of anise and dusty minerals. Fleshy but emphatically dry, with a firm, focused finish that attenuates the anise note.  (Nov 2013)

Wine Advocate 88 points - A blend of 62% Grenache Blanc and 38% Roussanne, the 2011 Le Cigare Blanc Beeswax Vineyard was aged in 30% French oak, on lees, for 8 months. Exotic and complex, it gives up notions of ripe peach, dried grass and citrus blossom to go with a medium-bodied, supple and nicely texture profile. It, too, is beautifully made, and should be consumed over the coming couple of years. Drink now-2014. (Aug 2013)

Pale gold color with green-gold highlights, rich aromas of beeswax, lavender, quince and cardamom lead to a mouthful of Asian pear, quince and wild fennel with a distinctive note of minerals on the mid-palate. Silky in texture and perfectly balanced, the 2008 Le Cigare Blanc has a long, savory, satisfying finish. Its unique flavors will pair exceptionally well with fresh swordfish, lobster and roast turkey.
Wine maker notes
Le Cigare Blanc is the white analog of Le Cigare Volant, our homage to the complex blended wines of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. The great white Cigare is not unlike the great white whale; rarely seen, difficult to catch, yet its name is legend. It’s a rich, savory wine with greater power and extraction than one typically finds at Bonny Doon.
