2018 Grenache Blanc / Roussanne (Magellan, Domaine)

Domaine Magellan, Blanc "Le Fruit Defendu", Languedoc, France, 2018

{sustainable} 60% Grenache Blanc, 40% Rousanne

RIPE NECTARINE & TROPICAL FRUIT, ZESTY WHITE PEPPER, GENTLE TOAST

Full-bodied yet balancing its rich ripeness with healthy acidity, this impressive Eastern Languedoc offering carries itself like what would often be a more expensive Southern Rhone white. Time in oak barrels (utilized after a couple years’ service in Burgundy’s Beaune) has imbued a light toastiness that doesn’t detract from the extroverted tropicality or freshness and adds an extra dimension of luxury.

Serving Suggestion: Triggerfish w/ avocado oil & aioli w/ onion rings. Savory, twice-fried plantains & cabbage salad w/ cilantro & orange-glazed carrot ribbons.
