Accueil / Vins & Huiles d'olives / Châteauneuf du Pape / Clef de St Thomas

A white wine of high Châteauneuf typicity!

Tasting

2015 – Very delicate floral, almond and bourbon vanilla notes. Delectably mouth-watering with its fresh, balanced palate.

additional Information

Terroir: Ten hectares (25 acres) of vines planted in several plots around the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. To the south, on the pebbles of the Serres locality where old Grenache achieves full expression; to the north, on the clay-rich soils of Charbonnières, white varieties affirm their fruitiness; and to the west and its sandstone soils – which all in all offer highly Châteauneuf typicity!
