2009 Domaine Ste. Leocadie Minervois Blanc Languedoc-Roussillon (Previously $13)

SKU #1069752

This will take you right back to that trip to Southern France last year, or the one in your dreams! This is a warm weather white with real backbone, with citrus fruit, nice minerality, grip and length and a real affinity toward the foods of the region, anything cooked with wild thyme, especially grilled seafood. In the heart of the Causses (a group of limestone plateaus in the the elevated region of south-central France known as the Massif Central) is the AOC Minervois. In this special section of the western Languedoc is the village of Aigne, with its snail-like center. The origins of this charming village go as far back as the first century AD (when it was inhabited by the Romans), so it is believed that the winding streets were installed as a safeguard against invaders. This is red wine country (and to a lesser extent, rose country), but spectacular white wines can also tote the Minervois appelation.

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
