Bargain Wine of the Week: La Vieille Ferme Cotes du Luberon Blanc 2010

It’s time for a white Wine of the Week. And this one’s an amazing value.

From the Rhone region of France, this wine (the name means “the old farm”) has got White Grenache, Bourboulenc, Ugni Blanci, and Roussanne, and delivers flavors of green apple, lemon, and pear; nice and zesty but with enough backbone from the Grenache to give it some body.  This is great wine when you’ve got a lot of people to serve and don’t want to break the bank, and want to give ’em something other than some run-of-the-mill Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio.

You can find this wine at about $6-8.  Really. Get some.
