Not content with creating a commercial style of white Cassis – which has a gun flint character when young, but developing the typical honeyed character with age, Jean-Jacques Bontoux-Bodin also makes a special cuvée of free-run white wine with floral aromas, almonds and honey, which is only bottled on demand.
