An outstanding year for barrel-fermented whites finds life in this iteration of Mistral Blanc. On the nose, enticing floral aromatics of lily and acacia give way to whispers of cut wood and fennel. This savory focus continues on the palate with forward notes of lanolin and almond supporting a core of orange zest and honeycomb. This is a largely texture-driven wine, with well-integrated acidity being balanced by mid-palate weight and a subtle tannic structure provided by sur lies aging and pre-ferment skin contact. This wine comes alive with food. Try pairing with Oysters Rockefeller, buttery white fish such as Sea Bass or Halibut, pesto gnocchi, or Moroccan-spiced root vegetables.
