May 2015: The Wine Advocate’s special Languedoc review includes two from Rives-Blanques amongst the five top-rated white wines of the region.

The Wine Advocate published the results of its Languedoc specialist, Jeb Dunnuck’s review of the region’s wines.

The Rives-Blanques chenin blanc Dédicace 2012 (“another stunner from this producer”) was awarded 92 “Parker points”.   “A beautiful white that’s well worth the effort to track down”

At the same time, our flagship Odyssée 2013 “a terrific chardonnay”, was also given 92 points by The Wine Advocate.   “The nose alone is worth the price of admission”, it says.

The four Rives-Blanques wines submitted to the tasting are “some of the top whites reviewed for this (Languedoc) report”, says Jeb Dunnuck.

In his article entitled “France’s unknown gems”, he said the region has made ‘terrific strides’, offering a ‘bevy of brilliant wines’ to the discerning consumer.  His five most highly rated white wines all scored 92 points.
