One of my best wine purchases in 2018 was this amazing white from legendary winemaker Olivier Pithon, a wizard of the IGP Côtes Catalanes in Rousillon

Represented by Ward in Quebec, the 2017 was available in the private import market. Luckily for us in Quebec the current 2018 is now available at selected SAQ outlets. For $32 dolores, it is one best bottles of the Rousillon in the Quebec Market

A blend of Maccabeu, Grenache Gris and Blanc, this white left me speechless. It hs an incredible nose of wax bee, smoke with a hint of citronella complemented by camomile and white orchard fruit. On the palate, it has a medium to high acidity with a chewy finale and a very long aftertaste reminiscent of gunflint. Perfect pairing with a supper of grilled salmon.
