    The bottle is so dark, this first appears to be a red Cotes du Rhone until consumers see "white wine" on the back label. The 2010 Rouvre Saint Leger "Laudun" does have the presence of a rouge. It's 100-percent viognier, pale yellow with an extravagant nose of ripe apricot and citrus. Lush and creamy, this is a wine to roll around the tongue, savoring every nuance. It's definitely not shy. Pair it with grilled lobster, seared scallops or mussels steamed in a splash of the same wine. You may have to do a little work to track this one down, but at this price, it's worth it.
