   $17.00

ADD

Not far from the Languedoc’s spectacular vertical limestone outcropping known as Pic Saint Loup, thirteenth-generation vigneron Jean-Benoît Cavalier runs the historic Château de Lascaux. While Pic Saint Loup is renowned for its red wines and also has an appellation dedicated to rosé, the area is equally conducive to the production of high-quality whites. Situated at the foot of mountains that bring cool winds and close enough to the Mediterranean to benefit from its moderating influence, the vines enjoy perfect conditions to achieve balanced ripeness year after year. This blend of Rolle (Vermentino), Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier combines a sun-kissed roundness on the palate with the crisp liveliness conferred by the unique microclimate and rocky limestone soils. With notes of lemon and garrigue herbs plus a stimulating mineral element, the Lascaux blanc is the ideal match for Mediterranean fish preparations. Alternatively, chill a bottle for your apéritif and savor its breezy freshness. –Anthony Lynch
