Citrus Marmalade? Coteaux du Languedoc Blanc 'Clos des Benedictins' 2009, Rolle With It

Rolle With It, Coteaux du Languedoc Blanc 'Clos des Benedictins' 2009 from Chateau La Roque is a biodynamic wine even the non-purists will like.

Rolle goes under the name Vermentino in Italy.

This white wine blend is 45% Rolle, 45% Marsanne and 10% Rousanne, golden robe, 'citrus marmalade' (says domain) and stone fruit flavors.


Winemaker suggests thyme flavoured roasted langoustine, "poulet de Bresse aux girolles", and any blue cheese as perfect pairings.
