Domaine Houchart Blanc AOC Côtes de ProvenceRegular price €18.50
Clairette, Rolle and Sémillon—sounds like Provence. And that's indeed the case in this fresh, direct and tangy white from Domaine Houchart that shares a stable with the Quiot family's sublime rosé.
The youthful vibrancy of the three grapes is the main attraction here, with aromas of citrus and nectarine leading to a mouth-watering assembly of lively flavours from lemon to peach and greengage, with marmaladey hints just below the surface.
There's a hint of fullness about each mouthful that means this is a wine that won't get lost when the snacks come out—but its appeal is so bright and immediate that you may well decide it's complete in itself.
