Bargain Marsanne!

We are excited to bring in this great producer.  
This is a bargain Marsanne.
2015 Cave de Tain Première Note Marsanne...$13.99

Tasting Notes: Bright and clear, with tints of green. Fresh and intense citrus flavors, including lemon and grapefruit, and delicate notes of white flowers.
Serve With: Perfect as an aperitif or with salads, seafood, and white meat grilled with herbs. Also good for mildly spicy dishes such as sauteed prawns with ginger.

The Cave de Tain is among the world's very greatest wine producers, a giant of the Northern Rhone with over 50 acres in Hermitage, a stunning, state-of-the-art winery (10 million Euros invested over the past five years) and a brilliant team of winegrowers.
Besides Hermitage, they produce most of the region's IGP (previously Vin de Pays) and half of all Crozes Hermitage (but bottling only a third of that under their own top label), as well as St Joseph, Cornas and St. Peray.
