"This estate dates from 1794 and is one of the oldest in the region. They make fine Châteauneuf-du-Pape (on sale for a bargain €28 at the moment), but do not stint on the quality of the fruit used for their Côtes du Rhône labels. Aromas of plum and spice with wild damson notes in the background, supple and concentrated with layered dark and red fruits and solid length."
"I don’t mention white Châteauneuf-du-Pape often enough - this is sourced from the estate’s ‘Vignobles de la Serrière’ vineyard in the north of the Appellation, a blend of Bourboulenc, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Clairette with luscious acacia flower and honeysuckle aromas, pear and tropical fruits on the palate with a textured honeycomb character on the finish, perfect with lobster or crab, or for a luxurious picnic."
