Cassagne Blanc

Costières de Nîmes AOC

50% Marsanne, 30% Roussane,
20% Grenache Blanc

The southern Rhône has many different white wine grapes to choose from, these three, Marsanne, Roussanne, and Grenache Blanc, make for great bedfellows. Rich and expressive fruit flavors abound with a combination of orchard and stone fruits, like pear and peach, which are complimented by the scent of wildflowers. The palate is supple and round with good freshness and balance in the finish.

POINTS OF INTEREST

For fans of unoaked, fruity styles of Chardonnay, you will love these white grapes native to the southern Rhône. Two brothers, Benoît and Laurent Dardé, work hard to produce balanced and fresh wines from their estate vines that are certified sustainable with organic practices. Just outside the village of Saint-Gilles, the family has been farming and making affordable, classic southern French wines since 1887.
