A svelte, rich and powerful white from the south of France, this delivers razor-sharp flavors of apple, pear, gooseberry and mango, with hints of smoke and spice. Clean and precise on the finish.
The white wines of Bandol should be better known in this country. They are rich but dry, and they evoke the sun and sea perhaps more than any other white on the planet. This one, from Gros Noré also brings to mind crisp, cold honeydew melon, lemon zest, and seashells. Bracing but not in the least bit shrill, it is ideal with cold shellfish, or hot shellfish, or pretty much most anything from the sea. 13% abv.
