Tasting Note: The only white wine in our range, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc by La Millière is what you might call a rarity, with a maximum of 3 000 bottles being crafted a year. It is made up of 4 grape varieties: Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Roussanne. The alliance of Grenache Blanc and Clairette gives our White Châteauneuf-du-Pape fruity and floral aromas and flavours, finesse and an excellent aptitude for ageing. The much livelier Bourboulenc gives the wine freshness and elegance, while Roussanne contributes generous aromas and great fullness. The epitome of finesse, our Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is surprising in its freshness and the wealth of its palette of aromas and flavours. Seductive from its first youth, this wine makes an ideal aperitif or partner to a wide variety of dishes. Its excellent capacity to age will delight any gourmet who, after a few years’ patience, will discover the elegance of its complex aromas that include honey and dried fruit.
