Sue Dyson and Roger McShane
Country: France

The chalky soils near Cassis and the cooling breezes that blanket the vineyards with salty spray, ensure that interesting wines are produced in this tiny (80 hectares) appellation.
The Cassis appellation was one of the first in the country to be established (1936).
Domaine la Ferme Blanche is one of the leading producers of this appellation, producing a white of outstanding clarity and freshness and with honey overtones that make it the perfect accompaniment for the local seafood dishes.
The white wine is usually a blend of local varieties such as Marsanne (25%), Ugni Blanc (25%), Clairette (20%), Bourboulenc (20%) and Sauvignon Blanc.
