Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc "Pure"

2018

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.

"Made from 100% Clairette, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Pure Blanc sports a medium gold hue as well as a terrific nose of caramelized peach, orange blossom, toasted spices, white flowers, and a kiss of background barrique. With medium-bodied richness, a layered, elegant texture, and outstanding length on the finish, it has come together nicely from barrel and can be enjoyed today or cellared for a solid 10-12 years if you’re so inclined."
