Domaine de la Laidiere Blanc, Bandol 2008

Made from Clairette and Ugni Blanc, Laidiera Blanc is floral and fresh with pleasant acidity and minerality. White Bandols are tricky. They are not inexpensive and don’t usually fit into the crisp and citrusy category of a Sauvignon Blanc or buttery and creamy category of Chardonnay So where does that leave Bandol Blanc? Maybe more like a white Rhone–but it really its its own thing. These are wines of texture and weight with subtle aromatics. Hints of peach skin, apricot pit but not full-blown fruit flavors. Subtle citrus with a rocky mineral finish. This is a terrific rendition with an almost full body mouthfeel and deft lively brightness on the tongue. It’s a happy medium. Not too heavy, not too light, just right. So where does it fit? In your glass!
