2011 CASSIS BLANC • CLOS STE. MAGDELEINE
François Sack’s son, Jonathan, has begun to take an active role at Clos Ste. Magdeleine, and his ambition is a sign of great things to come at the domaine. The 2011 is a preview: another great vintage of Marsanne, Ugni Blanc, Clairette, and Bourbelenc from one of the most spectacular properties in the wine world, perched right over the sparkly turquoise Mediterranean. Not much wine from Cassis makes it out of the region, where most of it is gulped down with grilled fish, steamed mussels, fish soup . . . Hopefully our small allocation will meet the same fate at your dinner table.
$32.00 per bottle $345.60 per case
