2019 Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc ''Cave Vinum'' (Mas de Libian)

Mas de Libian, Cotes-du-Rhone Blanc "Cave Vinum", Rhone Valley, France 2019

{biodynamic} 40% Viognier, 40% Roussanne 20% Clairette


The soeurs Thibon of Mas de Libian are as thoughtful about naming their wines as they are about creating them. For their single white offering, they play on the "cave canem" ("beware of dog") signs that were discovered in the ruins of Pompeii. Not that there is anything to fear with this delicious Viognier-based blend, 20% of which is fermented in oak before joining with aromatic Roussanne and bright Clairette.

Serving Suggestions: Arugula salad with toasted almond-encrusted baked chevre and grilled apricots; Pike quennelles (delicate fish dumplings) in parmesan cream sauce.
