Thanks to our wine sponsor, Marius Blanc by Michel Chapoutier
Michel Chapoutier is one of the most highly regarded winemakers in France. The story behind Michel Chapoutier's latest innovation, Marius, was inspired by Michel's great grandfather -- a man with an insatiable thirst for life and the gentleman who graces the label on Marius wines. Marius Blanc is fresh and elegantly casual. A blend of two of the most common white grapes of the Languedoc, the Terret and the Vermentino, the Terret offers lively acidity while the Vermentino's citrusy and floral scents lead to a delightful sipping wine that pairs wonderfully with food. Visit uncorked.com to purchase a bottle of Marius."
