2016 Domaine la Croix Belle "Champ de Lys" Cotes de Thongue Blanc (Previously $12)

SKU #1306656

Just outside the city of Montpellier lie the vineyards of La Croix Belle, a family owned and operated Domaine that traces it roots back to the region more than two centuries. Francoise and Jacques Boyer assumed contril of the property in the late 70s with an eye towards making clean expressive wines reflecting the region. A lot of replanting was done, yields were lowered and modern winemaking techniques and facilities were adopted. This eye for detail had delivered us some of the freshest and most compelling values of the season. The "Champ de Lys" is a blend of Viognier (50%), Grenache Blanc (20%), Chardonnay (20%) and Sauvignon Blanc (10%). It spends most of its time in tank but a small fraction sees a touch of oak aging. The nose shows ripe stone fruit aromas of peach and nectarine. Lacy white flowers also appear and the wine has a wonderful citrus driven finish.

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.
