Domaine la Croix des Marchands Fraîcheur Perlée

Domaine la Croix des Marchands Fraîcheur Perlée

New Vintage 2017!  The perfect summer wine, this blend from the Gaillac region in southwestern France is fresh-tasting and light, with hints of green apple and pear. It’s great as aperitif or with salads.  Plus, it's certified sustainable by Terra Vitis, a French agriculture organization.

About This Wine:
The village of Montans was a crossroad for the pottery trade from Roman times. It was also an important area for wine production, and the wine amphoras produced in the area (and presumably filled with local wine) have been found as far away as Northern Scotland and Southern Spain. The village is part of the Gaillac AOC in the Languedoc. Jerome Bézios produces wines under two labels: Domaine la Croix des Marchands, a tribute to the traveling merchants of the past, and Château Palvié, a subsection of the property named for the family that owned the property before the French Revolution. First Vine is the first importer to bring M. Bézios’s wines to the U.S.

The Gaillac region of France produces some Bordeaux-style wines, and also wines with local varietals, some of which have been grown for centuries. M. Bézios focuses on the best of the locals. The Fraîcheur Perlée is a new wine made from equal parts Muscadlle, Mauzac, and Loin de L'oeil, a light-bodied white that is dry and crisp. Mauzac is the oldest grape varietal in the region and can be sweet or dry, spicy or fruity, depending on vinification, but it always has a sort of green apple and pear flavor. Muscadelle contributes floral aromas, and Loin de L'oeil adds depth and acidity. It's fresh and a little sparkly, as the "pearl" name implies -- perfect for summer, or just when you want to feel like it's summer.
