Another wine that represents the ‘new France’ in wine making talent – and value.
FRANCE’S LITTLE-KNOWN WHITE
Everyone loves – or at least knows of Rhone reds, but what about the white variety! For sure it plays only a support part, and the production is limited, but they are worth seeking out if you enjoy whites with pure flavours. Bertrand’s wine delivers a fine introduction – shades of a non-oaked Chardonnay, with a creamy texture suggesting richness. But the main feature is teasing, delicate flavours. Very understated, very French. Very good company in the early part of the evening, the party, the brunch, the whatever.
