Tasting Note:

The typical blend is Clairette 40% (50 year old vines), Grenache Blanc 30%, Bourboulenc 15% and Roussanne 15%, the wine is fermented half in vat and half in oak cask, 15% of which are new. However the 2013 has 10% less Grenache than usual which, together with the cooler vintage conditions, makes for a particularly appetising, taut and elegant white Chateauneuf. Intense and taut, tight, some floral and peach blossom notes, juicy flavours of nectarine, citrus skin, stone and salt and a distinct hint of lime that you don't normally get in this wine. Long tense and incisive, truely one of the best whites in Chateauneuf.
