Luberon: Château la Canorgue Blanc 2022
This organic provençal white wine from the Margan family at Château la Canorgue is a blend of Roussanne, Marsanne, Clairette and Bourboulenc, 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.
Deceptively pale yet fruit laden Luberon white wine with crisp acidity and freshness. Appealing agrumes aromas and uplifting apricot and white peach flavours.
As one of the pioneers of organic wine in Provence, the Margan family began producing wine on the family's estate near Bonnieux in the 1970s. Nathalie Margan's organic blend of Marsanne, Roussanne, Clairette and Bourboulenc each lend their best attributes to a white wine that is not only vivaciously crisp, but mineral and stone-fruit scented. Enjoy with creamy mushroom pasta or aubergine à la Provençale.

Château la Canorgue (Nathalie Margan)
Nathalie Margan worked with her father Jean-Pierre for over a decade before gradually taking over the reins (though Jean-Pierre still lends a hand when needed). Nathalie's father and wife Martine began producing wine at Martine's 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. Nathalie nows farm 35 hectares organically and the wines are largely classified under the sizeable, and variable, Rhône satellite appellation of Luberon. The Margans are widely recognized as being amongst the best of the appellation and one of Provence’s most pioneering estates.
