The Full Review

White wines from the Roussillon region of southern France just over the border from Spain have, until now, been a bit of an afterthought in favor of the amazing reds coming out of this area of the world. But now whites are becoming part of the appellations there and thank the force that they have! Domaine La Tour Vieille have been making great wines since the early 80’s and finally their time has come on the American market. This white blend of all native grapes is so representative of the region it's insane. It's a well rounded vivacious wine with floral and white peach notes and a bracing acidity. It has incredible balance and deserves your dollars. Buy it now!
