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 grow organically on chalky clay and are surrounded by the characteristic rolling boulders that Châteauneuf is known for. After fermentation, the wine goes into new barrels for 15 to 18 months along with the dregs of the twigs and skins. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc which then emerges is golden yellow in colour 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 liquorice. Very long finish. Above all, do not serve too cold (12 degrees) for the most delicious flavour explosion! Great with salmon tartare, grilled tuna, risotto with prawns, a Saltimbocca alla Romana or with Blue d'Auvergne. Just sipping it on its own is also great!
