It is one of the top wine-producing domains in the sun-drenched land of Provence in the south of France. Nestled into the picturesque hamlet of Arc sur Argens, within view of the scenic Maures mountains, the Château Maïme domain is the success story of Pierre-Jean Sibran and Jean-Michel Garcia who have worked the land and the wine-making process there for the past two decades and have notably invested in state-of-the-art wine vats. The house has brought out its Origine Blanc 2019, an AOC Côtes de Provence marked by its ivory color and refined, concentrated taste. This is one of the great white wines bolstered by its AOC classification, an AOC being a controlled designation of origin, a French certification given to French geographical indications for wines and other agricultural products. The Origine Blanc 2019 is made with distinctive grape varieties like the Rolle or Vermentino, the Grenache and the Sémillon and although we like it as an apéritif, it is perfectly paired with rich foods like sautéd foie gras or poultry in a cream sauce.
