2019 Blanc, Vaucluse "Sud Absolu" (Ligiere, Domaine La)

Domaine La Ligiere, Vaucluse Blanc "Sud Absolu", Rhone Valley, France 2019

{organic} 100% Muscat á Petits Grains


Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains, an ancient pan-Mediterranean grape with no shortage of clout in this corner of the Southern Rhone has long been typecast as a grape whose undeniable potential for decadence and dessert should be pursued to the absolute fullest. Taking a totally different tact with this cuvée, Ligière follows a decidedly non-dessert, dry route here and employs the fiercely characterful grape as a delicious quaffer. This is an unusually refreshing yet perfumed example of what is most likely the original “Muscat." It is, quite literally, the granddaddy of Torrontes, and we highly recommend it to fans of that Argentine grape!

Serving Suggestion:  Crab-based bouillabaisse w/ copious rouille (French Mediterranean spicy olive oil-infused mayonnaise w/ garlic & saffron). Similarly, spider rolls w/ scallion, lots of masago, & aioli!
