This lush white comes from Morocco, where winemaking dates back 2,500 years and has undergone a modern revival.
What You Need To Know
Moroccan wine is more than a curiosity: Under the liberalizing policies of King Hassan II and his successor, Mohammed VI, the country has encouraged foreign investment in Moroccan vineyards and the industry is thriving. Domaine Ouled Thaleb was found in 1923 by a Belgian financial group on a high plateau northeast of Casablanca, where seachilled breezes and altitude temper brutal summer heat. Today the estate is owned by visionary vintner Brahim Zniber, a central figure in Morocco’s drive toward high-quality wine. Its cellars are helmed by Bordeaux-trained winemaker Jacques Poulain. For this oak-free white, Poulain blends Faranah, an ancient Mediterranean variety, with Clairette, a crisp, mineral French grape.
