Spring-Scented: Floral Whites from Southern France

You may know loads about the muscular reds from Southern France, but how much do you know about the aromatic, dry whites from the iconic appellations south of the Rhône Valley? These wines-floral, full, and sometimes almost briny with a maritime influence-hail from such tiny ACs as Cassis in Provence, Corbières, Picpoul de Pinet, and Palette. The grapes used in these sub-regions are vast, ranging from the finely tuned Clairette to the round Grenache Gris to the almost nutty Marsanne (with everything in the white grape toolbox in between). Perhaps the crown jewel of our collection of Southern French whites is a wine from the tiny appellation of Palette, a near-monopole owned almost primarily by Château Simone, which has been producing wines here on limestone soils for centuries. But don’t discount Les Vals from Corbières, a heady, delicious white that is worth just as much time, attention, and respect. These aromatic whites from all over France’s south are perfect for the changing season. Pair them with food or drink them in concert with spring’s best sunset. Either way, you can’t go wrong.
