Tasting note : Chateau de la Font du Loup, Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2007

Chateau de la Font du Loup, Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2007

The Chateau de la Font du Loup Chateauneuf du Pape white 2007 is a blend of 40% Grenache Blanc, 30% Rousanne, 15% Clairette and 15% Bourboulec. The Roussanne and Clairette have been vinified in "second vin" from Chateau d'Yquem, then matured in french oak for 8 months. The other grapes have been vinified in stainless steel tanks to ensure a great freshness in the final blend. The nose is warm and complex and presents pear and peach aromas. On the palate, the wine is round with mineral notes of silex. The mid palate is beautiful, rich and well balanced with enough acidity to give a long lasting finish full of honey flavours. QC
