Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is is a little known but striking wine. Blended from Grenache Blanc, Boubelenc, Roussanne & Clairette, the wine's unique spicy yet floral qualities make it a crowd pleaser and its firm acidity provides the structure for a rare white which can benefit from a small amount of aging.
Wine with a bright yellow dress, limpid and young hints. Intense bouquet of spring and white flowers, apple, pear, light woody notes and vanilla. On the palate, a frank attack and a real volume, aromas of fresh fruits and white peach with subtle barrel notes. A wine with a long elegant finish
Very bright and pure, with a stony beam that drives the quince, green and yellow apple, honeysuckle and heather notes. The long finish has mouthwatering minerality. Drink now through 2011. 1,666 cases made
The 2007 La Nerthe Blanc (14% Grenache blanc, 5% Bourboulenc, 42% Roussanne, and the rest Clairette) is a full-bodied, dry white with notes of spring flowers, honeysuckle, and an almost exotic tropical fruit character, no doubt from the Roussanne. It should drink nicely for 3-4 years.
Light yellow-gold. A complex, seductive bouquet displays lemon zest, tangerine, pungent herbs and minerals, with a floral undertone. Very fresh on the palate, with zesty, finely etched citrus and mineral flavors and a late note of licorice. Surprisingly light and brisk for a blend with so much roussanne, boasting excellent finishing clarity, minerality and cut.
