Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of 40% Clairette, 30% Grenache Blanc, 15% Bourboulenc and 15% Roussane.

A member of the classic school of white Ch√Ęteauneuf-du-Pape: more floral than fruity aromas, and characterised by balance and freshness. It might dip in form between four and eight years, but the best vintages age as well as the reds.
