Clos Sainte Magdeleine 'Bel-Arme' Cassis Blanc, France 2019
Importer Kermit Lynch is not wrong with he calls Cassis 'an earthly paradise.' From the idyllic cliffs of Cassis, this wine is enjoyed best while channeling that Mediterranean bliss. The vineyards of Clos Sainte Magdeleine are particularly stunning: they jut out on a private cape to meet majestic limestone bluffs, poised spectacularly above the sparkling, azure waters. Enjoy on its own or with fresh seafood, just make sure it’s with someone you like.
