Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc


A new expression of Chateaneuf-du-Pape Blanc in the 2021 vintage. It’s a blend of 60% Clairettes and 40% Roussanne from the Serres lieu-dit with galets stones, gravel, and blue clay. It’s the first vintage that is aged in a mix of glass demi-johns and two year-old demi-muids barrels. Clairette gives a lot of freshness.

"This remarkable white Chateauneuf combines the generosity and textural complexity that we expect from this category with a bright mineral acidity to create a great harmony. A wealth of candied fruit aromas, particularly citrus, but also apricots and pineapple right through the stony and salty finish that doesn’t want to stop. Just a hint of toasted baguette. A cuvée based on clairette with a smaller part of roussanne from organically grown grapes. "

"The 2022 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc is terrific, with a Burgundian-like minerality as well as classy notes of orchard fruits, orange blossom, spice, and crushed stone. It's medium-bodied, has beautiful purity and precision, good acidity, and a great finish. This terrific white is a no-brainer purchase and will evolve for 7-8 years, if not over a decade."

"A very fresh, clean style, with white peach, creamed pear, star fruit and lime curd humming along with dried herbs, heather and a lot of wet stone. The intensity builds with mineral energy, notes of fleur de sel and succulent acidity driving the drawn-out, voluptuous finish, marked by shortbread and smoke. Clairette and Roussanne. "
