Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

2019

21% Grenache Blanc, 21% Roussanne, 21% Bourbelenc, 21% Clairette and 15% Picpoul. 5% of the Roussanne is fermented in new oak for 6 weeks, then aged in stainless steel. No malolactic. 

It’s uncommon to find Bourboulenc in a CdP Blanc; Alexandre likes it in the blend because it tends to have lower alcohol than the other grapes, and brings acidity and balance to the wine.

"Starting with the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc from this estate, it checks in as a blend of 20% each of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Clairette, Picpoul, and Bourboulenc. Giving up a rock-solid bouquet of honeyed apples, citrus blossom, white flowers, and a kiss of honeyed toast, this beauty has a supple, seamless texture and beautiful overall balance. Medium-bodied on the palate, this is just a classic Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc that does everything right, delivering plenty of mid-palate and texture, a solid sense of freshness, and a clean, dry finish. It’s going to shine on the dinner table and is well worth following over the coming 2-4 years."
