This is wine as refreshing as a mountain stream running through a field of fragrant wildflowers. Spice, quince, lemon, minerality and ocean spray.

Satisfyingly fleshy dense underripe white peach and quince and with cut and crunch and length really enjoyable in a quietly powerful way

Ripe apricot & citrus aromas, definite mineral note. A silky texture at once airy and rich; a hint of beeswax on the finish

Great minerality and citrus. More body than other bottles. Crisp orange zest finish. Very good.

Great juice. Pale yellow color, bright citrus fruit in the body and great acidity in the finish. Refreshing.

Delicious Marsanne blend! Bright, crisp, citrus and mineral notes, with just a touch of richness to round things out...

Bright like that sun and sea breeze in Cassis, but has real weight to it, too. Would be €9 over there but it’ll run you $37 at Houston Wine Merchant. Fair price, perhaps, for a very hard to find appellation. I want to say that there’s a real sense of place to this wine, but maybe only because I have been to the place. In any event it has transported me back to the shores of the Mediterranean, and maybe it will do the same for you, too.

One of three new wines from Clos Sainte Magdeleine. Oh my. Nothing in the world like standing in that vineyard, then tasting their lineup, then going for a swim in that cove afterward. What a day.
