Gardies Vin de Pays des Cotes Catalanes Mas las Cabes Blanc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

'20 Great Wines for $20 or Less,' San Francisco Chronicle: [$15 list] Complex white from one of France's unheralded Roussillon. Jean Gardies is a name to remember in the Roussillon -- in part for the wines from his family's domaine, but also for the affordable Las Cabes wines from the town of Espira de l'Agly. This is Catalan France, and so the mix of Muscat, Grenache Blanc and Macabeu straddles that Pyrenees border between two cultures. The results are impressive in any language: ripe pear, bay leaf and citrus blossom accent a plush wine that simply relies on great old-vine fruit and minimal winemaking. (2/29/12)
