I can't understand why Audrey Latard isn't more well known. She has a 'Cru' level address, is one of the most nice and affable young vigneronnes in the business, and her wines are thoroughly delicious and enjoyable. 

When I first visited her this past August, I took note of lots of construction materials lining the driveway--shingles, cement blocks, pipes--that sort of stuff. She was building/renovating a house on the property so she could finally live near the winery rather than commute from Vaison every day. I asked if she would install a sign for the winery along the road (I had trouble finding her) and she shrugged indifferently. It's just me, she said. I put up a sign, I only work in the tasting room. What happens to the vineyard?

I love this sort of matter-of-fact-ness. The gleam in her eye as I asked this question seemed to say, hey dummy, YOU found me--so can others!

When I visited again with Audrey in February I was really excited because I would get to try her only white wine, an all-tank fermentation of delicious Muscat Petit Grains. Audrey makes a bone dry style and it is everything I want in a summer white--mouth-watering, thirst-quenching, and downright delicious. The aromatics lead the way here, with a whiff of orange peel and a hint of white pepper. 

You'll love this baby ice cold, by the pool, or at the beach, all summer long.
