Domaine Laguerre Le Ciste Blanc 2016
Named after a flowering bush, ”Le Ciste," is one of the most distinctive whites of the Southern France’s Roussillon. Grown on high-elevation vineyards, the wine is made from Marsanne, Roussanne, Rolle (Vermentino), Grenache Blanc and Maccabeu grape varietals. The small yields are hand harvested in small baskets, fermentation is with wild yeasts and aging is in small barrels. Complex aromas of lemon oil, thyme, hay; a dense, stony palate; lingering finish. One of the best whites of this underrated region and a great value.
