Under the guidance of importer Lambert Rollat, a group of winemakers and growers have teamed up to create a cooperative dedicated to crafting wines that are distinctive- - regardless of price. These producers work small production vineyards, allowing you to evade the big market plonk that litters the South of France. For this blanc, they’ve made a delicious blend that carries a surprising amount of acidity while maintaining balanced weight. It expresses beautiful aromas of white flowers countered by notes of melon and bright stone fruit. It’s an easy-drinking choice during the summer with friends or to brighten up your winter and every day in between.
Pairings: Steamed mussels in a taragon, lemon, butter broth
