Domaine les Yeuses Vermentino 2006
Vermentino, more often called Rolle in this part of France, is a snappy variety capable of producing wines of structure, fruit and complexity, when in the right hands.
This wine may sound generic, but in fact the Vin de Pays tagline is there because Vermentino is an unusual suspect here, not because the wine is not very special, and high quality. This white is quite juicy, with white peach and surprising length. And it is wonderful with all manner of seafood.
