La D 18, Cotes de Catalanes Blanc 2014, Domaine Olivier Pithon

35.99

Olivier Pithon’s wines possess an elegance and concentration that cements them in the memory long after the last glass has been drained.

La D 18 is named after the little road that winds its way past this tiny vineyard near the village of Calce in the Cotes du Roussillon. This is Grenache Gris and Grenache Blanc grown on schist-scarped soils and raised in a mixture of new, one and two year old oak as well as some demi-muids. It’s an absolute delight, and easy to mistake for a top white burgundy, until those apples, almonds, honeysuckle, fennel, olives and wild herbs wrapped in a velvety, yogurty texture, remind you that this is a true wine of the south. Enough! Lets open another!
