Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc "Pure"

2017

The only white made by Barroche, this 100% Clairette is a shining example of one of the oldest grape varieties in Provence, first planted in the 14th century – which is also when the family domaine was founded. Aged for 16 months in demi-muids.

"The 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Pure is all Clairette from the lieu-dit of Piedlong, fermented and aged in a mix of new steam-bent demi-muids and stainless steel. Hints of almond accent white peach notes on the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate is supple, round and silky, showing fine balance and harmony on the finish."
