Clos St. Magdeleine Cassis Blanc 2017

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in Wiltshire [www.yapp.co.uk] for £22. Casis is an appellation created in 1936,although viticulture here has been traced back as far as the ancient Greeks in 500BC,for red,rose and white wines [70% are white] from a single commune around the seaside village of that name 12 miles south-east of Marseilles.My bottle comes from a family owned producer and consists of 40% marsanne,30% ugni blanc, 25% clairette and 5% bourboulenc. I started it last night with my supper of fish cakes It is a deep yellow colour.It is a dry wine but not bone-dry.There is plenty of a fresh slightly sweet pear style fruit and a little citrus especially on the finish.In short,this is a nice wine that is not short of flavours and went well with the fish-cakes
