Tasting Notes

Just phenomenal. White Chateauneuf du Pape I often find underwhelming, sometimes a bit alcoholic, dull or flat, but this is just so full of joy, a perfume of white flowers and concentration and a weight in the mouth that is so good. Top tier Roussanne - a grape that has some of the stone fruit characteristics of Viognier, but has a different structure, and finesse, that's a bit closer to white Burgundy. Fermented and aged in double sized barriques - demi-muids.

More Info

To find a producer making this quality that was hitherto unknown is a dream come true. I still can't believe our luck. The secret is that, all along, the wine has been made at the cellar of the Perrins of Chateau de Beaucastel. But the terroir is phenomenal, and so is the attention to detail in the vineyards. The flavours are just amazing. The timing was impeccable - as the winery is just transforming from being a hobby of Jean-Louis Giornal to a business run by his daughter Florence and her husband Thomas.
