Staff Pick Notes

Cassis sits on the Mediterranean coast just east of Marseilles, before the glitzy towns of the Côte d'Azur start popping up. It's a pretty ideal spot in terms of quality of life, and that no doubt translates into the wines.

Domaine du Bagnol's Cassis Blanc has a character that fits right in here. It's a rich, easygoing wine that shows off its qualities without flaunting them.

It shows a rounded quality on the palate with notes of fleshy apricot, pear, honeysuckle, and a salty minerality.
