The ancient fishing village of Cassis has seen its fair share of visitors over the millennia. The Phoenicians first arrived in the sixth century B.C., and with them came the timeless Ugni Blanc grape and viticultural savvy. The Romans later made their way here, as well as their Barbarian successors, followed by the medieval Counts of Les Baux, all the way to tourists of the modern era looking to escape the cold, dark cities. Cassis is not only an active port, but what Kermit calls “an earthly paradise.” It’s aniseed-flavoured freshness and salted touches, it offers a vigorous and material taste over flavors becoming honeyed and finally iodized. This straw-colored wine evolves softly to tastes of acacia and peach syrup.
