It's hard to quantify Bandol Blanc because so little of it is made that few people have a reference point but I can think of no better benchmark than this gorgeous white from Agnes Cade at Chateau de la Noblesse. I love her reds and the rose but this white blew me away. Oily textured but still loaded with beautiful acidity, this is a wine of point and counter-point. Lemon, pineapple, dried mango and weight stones linger on the palate. The drive of acidity keeps it focused and lift the weight of the wine. Just delicious!

We always think of rosé when we hear the word Bandol, but the whites are starting to really catch my eye—especially when I can find something this tasty for around twenty bucks. Made from mostly Clairette, the Noblesse has delicate accents of white flowers and citrus, but it's also quite textural thanks to the addition of Grenache Blanc and Rolle grapes into the cepage. This is an off-the-beaten-path pick that should please any Chardonnay drinker.
