2018 Domaine de La Tour du Bon

In Bandol, only five percent of the wines produced are white, with the rest being rose and red. That means the opportunity to drink white Bandol, like Beaujolais Blanc, is best done when in the region, as the choices are more plentiful, and often more available when dining out.

Domaine de La Tour du Bon produces one of those whites that is very worthy of knowing about. Made from Clairette, Ugni Blanc and Rolle, the 2018 La Tour du Bon Blanc is a mineral based white wine that has the aromas of fresh flowers fields in full bloom, some star Anise, the subtleness of lemon zest, grapefruit, oranges, and pineapple fruit.

It’s a lovely white wine that is as at home all by itself, as it is with swordfish or tuna tartare, or even a nice hard cheese or soft chevre.

That’s why the 2018 La Tour du Bon Blanc is today’s WineSiders’ Wine of The Day.D
