A 2004 Domaine de Piaugier, Sablet Blanc, CÃ´tes du RhÃ´ne Villages ($22) blend of 40% Grenache Blanc, 30% Clairette, 20% Viognier, and 10% Roussanne turned out to be good, as did the 2001 Domaine du Trapadis, CÃ´tes du RhÃ´ne ($15) which consisted of 60% Grenache, 13% Carignane, 10% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and 7% Mourvedre.
