White Chateauneuf is one of the great wines of the world, but it has never really caught on with most consumers in North America. That’s unfortunate because there are few wines more enjoyable to drink. The combination of richness and tangy acidity is terrific, and the flavours cascade over the palate.
“Ripe and enticing, with lots of white peaches, green melon and yellow apple flavours laced with notes of shortbread and honeysuckle. A stony echo adds spine and length. Should unwind nicely.”

The colour is a beautiful golden yellow with glints of green. The nose expresses the specificity of this wine, with aromas of white fruit (apple, pear), orange blossom, aniseed and lemon and woody undertones. The palate has much presence, is very fruity, with finesse, breadth and sweetness, but retaining a good balance of freshness.
