2014 Cassis Blanc “Bel-Arme”

Clos Sainte Magdeleine

2014 Cassis <i>Blanc</i> “Bel-Arme” Clos Sainte Magdeleine - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant


This newish cuvée spotlights primarily fifty-year-old Marsanne vines perched on a limestone precipice over the Mediterranean. Fermentation takes place with native yeasts in concrete eggs, where the wine ages and completes its malolactic fermentation before an unfined, unfiltered bottling.
An herbaceous, floral nose opens up to hints of anise and pine nut. The palate is bright and zesty, substantially fleshy yet lean and precise, recalling a medley of Mediterranean herbs lifted by a mouthwatering salinity. There is no doubt: we are in Provence, by the sea—Bel-Arme is an unmistakable representation of a breathtaking site, impeccably translated into the glass.—Anthony Lynch
