Manually harvested from the mountainous and somewhat harsh terrain while the berries are still crunchy, this white, dry, crisp, mineral, and complex wine is as breathtaking as the views form the vineyards. Once home to sweet white wines, Côtes du Roussillon is beginning to make serious waves for their fresh low alcohol whites. The Cine-Panettone cuvée is the pinnacle of this style.

Minerality and salinity traipse across your tongue and live long on the finish. Pair this with sushi, grilled octopus, ceviche, herb-encrusted chèvre, or just pound it on its own.
