Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2018 - Domaine Galèvan
An elegant Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc made from 80% Grenache Blanc and for 20% from a blend of Clairette, Rousanne and Bourboulenc. The grapes are grown organically on calcareous clay and surrounded by the characteristic rolling boulders for which the Châteauneuf is known. After fermentation, the wine goes into new barrels for 15 to 18 months along with the sediment from the sprigs and skins. The resulting Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is golden yellow in color with a nose of overripe pear and banana with spice, vanilla and toast. Aromatic but refined and complex on the palate with lots of white fruit, minerals, toast and a mini sweet licorice. Very long finish. Do not serve too cold (12 degrees) for the best taste explosion! Beautiful with salmon tartare, grilled tuna, risotto with prawns, a Saltimbocca alla Romana or with Blue d'Auvergne. Just sipping it is also great!
