Perrin Roger Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc' 2010
90 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Deep ruby. Smoky cherry, raspberry and mocha on the perfumed nose. Fresh and juicy, offering smoke-accented cherry and red berry flavors and a hint of cracked pepper. Finishes smooth, mildly sweet and long, with a lasting spiciness and very good energy. (Jan/Feb 2013)
There is name that echoes through the centuries and to the four corners of the world and that name is Chateauneuf-du-pape!

(45-50% Grenache Blanc (which brings roundness, structure and typicity), 18-20% Roussanne (which brings fat, length and fruit), 20-22% Clairette (50% was planted in 1921, which brings fruit), 5-7% Bourboulenc (from vines planted in 1921 and which brings floral notes and acidity). These grapes are vinified separately, pressed directly, and fermentated sur lie. The Roussanne is vinified in new oak. After its alcoholic fermentation, its lees are stirred a couple of times a week for seven months. The other grapes are raised in temperature controlled stainless steel where they harmonize until the final blend. - Winery ** Only 1 in Stock **
