One of the pitfalls of white wines from the south of France is that they are often a little flabby while being flamboyant in the same moment; this wine is not cut from that cloth. The acidity from the small doses of the supporting grape varieties such as Bourbolenc, Picpoul and Picardin give this wine layers of acidic snap and spicy. The remaining 80% are varying amounts of Grenache Blanc and Clairette, grape varieties that carry a modest acidity and are useful in fleshing out the wine in both the nose and palate. This blend creates a savory beauty laced with dried grasses, white flowers, honeysuckle, white stone fruits and a light spiciness. It is a beautiful and somewhat rare wine made on ancient vines from the Clavin lieu-dit. Sadly, there are only about 200 cases of this wine made each year. It is a must if you love southern French white wines with great complexity and zing.
Aniseed, liquorice, sweet floral notes - very alluring nose, svelte and slinky. Toffee, caramel and dairy flavours. How curious - dry but super-ripe, distinct floral character, good balance, smooth, creamy texture. Definitely different but not arbitrarily so.

Composition of the land This terroir is the same as the rouge section of Clavin. These old vines (over 60 years on average) are mixed in the field with the red varietals. Clavin shares nearly the same soil as the Chateauneuf parcels at the bottom of the hill, which is comprised mostly of sandy limestone soil with a small mix of diluvial clay soils left by the receding Rhone. It is a great terroir that was intentionally left out of the Chateauneuf-du-Pape region for polical reasons
