Vaudieu's classic white is the 2016 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, and it's a blend of 66% Grenache Blanc and 34% Roussanne brought up in 20% new oak. Its light gold color is followed by classic notes of buttered citrus, flower blossom, and honeysuckle. Possessing medium to full-bodied richness, terrific minerality, and bright acidity, as well as concentration, it's a gorgeous effort to enjoy over the coming 3-4 years, and I suspect even longer.

Product Description:

With 10 hectares of white varieties planted out of a total of 70 hectares, Château de Vaudieu under the leadership of Laurent Brechet, is somewhat of a specialist in Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc. Laurent’s entry level Blanc is a blend of Grenache Blanc and Rousanne from 25-50 year old vines planted in various terroirs around the 18th century Château – red clay soils with pebbles and gravel, marls and limestone as well as sand. Most of this cuvée is aged and fermented in tank with a small portion of Grenache Blanc and Roussanne aged in 228L French oak barrels. - Importer
