2016 Domaine du Bagnol Cassis Blanc

SKU #1343838

The Bagnol Cassis Blanc comes from a property in Southern France situated beneath a behemoth limestone outcropping called Cap Canaille, and it is just 200 meters from the Mediterranean. The vineyards are cooled by a trio of winds--the Tramontane, Mistral and Gregal--plus sea breezes, and the wines, both a blanc and rosé, are reflective of all of these factors. A blend of Marsanne, Clairette and Ugni Blanc, this dry, juicy wine tastes like white fruit and ocean spray, and it's the perfect match for bouillabaisse and other seafood dishes.

This bottle is without a doubt a great example of the best Provence can offer! Fresh and rich at the same time, with a divine creaminess on the palate. Lots of Provencal herbs here: thyme, fresh tarragon and even a touch of summer savory in there for good measure. I would (and have) drink this wine with anything garlicky, fried, richer salads, seafood, olives and of course... Cod or stock fish - which we call l'estocafida in Nice.

Looking for interesting wines from the south of France? Check out the wines from Cassis. This tiny appellation produces rich, low-acid wines that pair beautifully with seafood and are totally unique. The Domaine du Bagnol is a blend of 51% Marsanne, 31% Clairette Blanc, and 18% Ugni Blanc. The nose shows hints of citrus and spice. The palate is rich and textured, with flavors of lemon and marzipan. Very balanced and full of Marsanne character, it’s a great wine for interesting food pairings, or anyone who loves Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc.

Country:

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.
Sub-Region:

Provence

- Provence encompasses the southeastern portion of France that borders the Mediterranean. The largest appellation in the region is the Cotes de Provence that spans 49,600 acres of land in and around Marseilles. Thirteen different varietals are grown in this appellation with the most important grapes being Carignan, Cinsault, Grenache, and Mouvedre. While much of the production is dry rose, there are many more serious wines being made from the area. Some of the most important smaller appellations within Provence include Bandol, Coteaux d'Aix-en-Provence, and Coteaux Varois.
