Côtes du Luberon: Château la Canorgue Blanc 2018

This organic provençal white wine is a blend of Grenache, Clairette, Roussanne and Marsanne, grown at an elevated altitude which imparts a notable freshness. It is light enough to be drunk on its own or with olives, but will happily stand up to bouillabaisse or pissaladière.

Château la Canorgue (Jean-Pierre & Nathalie Margan)

Jean-Pierre Margan and his wife Martine began producing wine at her parents’ ancestral estate, Château de la Canorgue, in the craggy Provençal hills around Bonnieux in 1978. Over the following 20 years, they painstakingly renovated the house and created an inspirational modern winery making red, white and rosé wines that have drawn international acclaim. They now farm 35 hectares organically and the wines are classified under the sizeable, and variable, Rhône satellite appellation of Côtes du Luberon. The Margans are widely recognized as being amongst the best of the appellation and one of Provence’s most pioneering estates. Jean-Pierre and Martine’s daughter, Nathalie, has now joined the family business who is an enthusiastic ambassador for the domaine.
