Didier Cazac, Aïssada 2021, Ardèche, France
We met Didier at a lovely wine fair in the Ardèche earlier this year, he stood out among a field of great winemakers, the wines brimming with energy and pure fruit.
This gorgeous take on Grenache Blanc comes from a forty year old parcel planted over clay and limestone. The grapes were pressed directly to cuve for a short élevage, producing a pale, straw yellow wine that pairs delicate notes of apricot, honey and sea salt to beautiful effect.
