Clos Sainte Magdeleine Rosé, Cassis, France 2021
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. Perfectly pale pink in color, adorned with under ripe red fruit and lip smacking salinity, this wine will transport you to the south of France in no time.
