Chêne Bleu 2011 Aliot
La Verrière, Provence, France

Chêne Bleu's award-winning Grenache blend is named after Aliot de Montvin, the glassblower who purchased the vineyard in 1427. Profiting from the region's high altitude and prolonged growing season, Aliot boasts fresh fruit aromas with notes of apricot and pineapple on the palate.

Catch of the day: This white Grenache blend pairs deliciously with a grilled salmon fillet.

Rating: 15/20

Price: $53
