Winemaker's Notes

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

A member of the classic school of white Châteauneuf-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.

Critical Acclaim

"Focused, with a range of apple, lime, pear, floral and mineral notes that stretch out on the bright, stony finish. This has concentration in reserve. Drink now through 2012."
93 Points

"Pale yellow. Sexy aromas of pear, melon, brown spices and honeysuckle, plus a hint of toasty lees. Fleshy orchard and citrus flavors stain the palate and are braced by tangy minerals. Really clings on the finish, with the leesy quality strongly repeating. This is powerful enough to serve with richly sauced poultry dishes."
