This is a tragically under-appreciated white wine! Made primarily with Macabeo, also known as Viura (also known as the main ingredient in white Rioja and top-tier Cava), this hails from the French side Catalonia. Almost Loire-like in its minerality and brightness, this does not drink like a typical Southern French wine, clocking in at only 12.5% abv. Notes of citrus, stones and sea breeze dominate.

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

Fermented entirely in large Stockinger barrels, the “Domaine” white wine is a breathtaking achievement of pure minerality. Produced from very old inter-planted vineyards, this wine comprises roughly equal parts Macabeu and Grenache Gris—but these varieties are mere vehicles for the impenetrable stone wall of the wine itself. During our visit, Thomas presented us versions of this wine going back to 2011, and its ability to evolve compellingly and shockingly was blatant and thrilling. We dare you to find a grand cru Chablis that can offer this sort of layered mineral essence and electric resonance after five years of aging.
