Clos Saint-Michel Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The white Châteauneuf is just sublime: aromas of acacia and wild mint jostle with honey, beeswax and vanilla, a mouthful of subtle pleasure. This is a didapper palate, a wine whose flavours seem to disappear only to bob up again like a nervous dabchick. Grenache 30%, Clairette 30%, Roussanne 20%, Bourboulenc 20%, all the grapes being manually harvested and fermented separately in 225 litre oak casks. After twelve months, and after a rigorous selection process, the wines are blended. Both colours of Châteauneuf will age happily for ten years or more.
