ADD

This blend of Rolle, Marsanne, Grenache Blanc, and Roussanne is a definite contender for “best white of the South.” The organically farmed Cocalières vines sit at altitude in an amphitheater of limestone and ancient volcanic basalt, surrounded by big stones and aromatic garrigue. The juice ferments wild and ages for over a year in neutral casks, completing its malolactic fermentation before an unfiltered bottling. Why one of southern France’s finest whites? Poise, length, sense of place, and aging potential. A 2002 opened recently showed astonishing complexity, reminiscent of honey, almonds, wildflowers, and liquid rocks. –Anthony Lynch
