2015 Domaine Pique-Basse ‘Le Blanc du Pique’
This is a wine so cultish from a producer so small it virtually unsearchable! Here’s what you need to know: This tiny (just .5 hectare) biodynamically farmed wine is made of Clairette, Rousanne, Marsanne, and Carignan Blanc and aged on Grenache Blanc lees. The wine is clean and refreshing, but the lees aging gives it intriguing texture and nuance. You’ll find stone fruits and minerality and a medium-bodied roundness that is typical of wines from this region of the Rhone. Not much left in the state, or elsewhere for that matter, so grab it while you can!
