Poussieres d’Etoile 2018
DPierre-Andre and Anne Deplaude didn't set out to be vignerons. They were dairy farmers who made a little wine in addition to growing grains and fruit. When dairy prices plummeted in the 2000s, they were forced to rethink things and planted some of their most interesting land to vines. This white is perfect for colder weather-- slightly honeyed with tart peach, floral, herbal and creamy notes.
