March 2009: The American wine publication Wine Enthusiast selects the Rives-Blanques chardonnay Cuvée de l’Odyssée as its Best Buy of the month …

The respected American wine publication, Wine Enthusiast awarded 90 pts to the Rives-Blanques chardonnay, Cuvée de l’Odyssée, calling it « a terrific Chardonnay from Limoux, an area more typically known for its Blanquette (which uses the Mauzac grape) but certainly not limited to it. It’s a ripe and rich wine, loaded with aromas of red apple, nectarine pit, and almond milk. The mouth shows a bit more vibrancy with flavors of lime essence backed by honeydew. Round and fantastically balanced, with a long finish kissed by toasted oak. »
