Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône Valley
La Crau de Ma Mere Blanc
Grenache Blanc, Roussane, Clairette, Bourboulenc
This white blend is full-bodied and expressive with dense floral aromatics supported by yellow apple, meyer lemon, peach, and white lavender. Even with such intense and expressive aromatics, the mineral core still shines through acting as an anchor to an otherwise extravagant wine experience. A very small quantity of white wine is made at the Mayard estate and it truly is a treasure.
POINTS OF INTEREST
This wine is sourced from 4 different grapes in two southeastern lieux-dits (vineyards), Mont-Pertuis and La Bigote, in Châteauneuf-du-pape. A combination of sand and clay strikes a balance between a rich full-bodied wine and a wine with an elegant lift. With just 500 cases produced from old-vines, this wine showcases the true terroir and beauty of the local indigenous varieties.
