"A fresh, pure style, with a lovely chamomile note leading the way, followed by verbena and honeysuckle accents before the yellow apple and Cavaillon melon fruit strides in. The creamy finish pulls everything together. Drink now through 2018. 56 cases imported."

"The base 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc is another killer effort. Made from 40% Roussanne and 30% each of Grenache Blanc and Clairette, it offers copious amounts of sautéed peach, tangerine and orange blossom to go with beautiful fruit and texture on the palate. Possessing vibrant acidity and a clean, crisp finish, I’d drink it over the coming 3-4 years, but you can keep this cuvée for decades"
This wine comes from sandy-clay soils in La Janasse and La Crau plots. The vines are grown without pesticides or insecticides and manure is natural. The land is thoroughly tilled in order to keep it ventilated and loose. Vinification occurs through pneumcatic pressing, Grenache and Clairette grapes vinification occurres in vat with lee stirring and for Roussannes vinification and aging in barrels (80% new) with lee stirring during seven months. 4,000 bottles each year, bottled without filtering. Tasting notes: Here is a statutory wine. The nose is a basket of yellow and white flesh fruits, where peach and exotic fruits dominate. Hints of vanilla and brioche bring a touch of extra fat. The richness of the mouth unfolds in a long sarabande of persistent aromas that sublimate fillet Saint-Pierre cooked on the skin. Enjoy it over the next fifteen years. -The winery
