F/R – FRANÇOISE ROUMIEUX
Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Rhône Valley
35% Grenache, 35% Clairette, 30% Roussane
This white wine is pure pleasure and embodies the way this natural landscape in the Southern Rhone valley feels. With the frequent winds, typical of this area, the air feels alive and aromatized. The white wine from Françoise is expressive with layered aromatics of fresh flowers, honeycomb, apricot, and tropical fruits. The texture is full, round, and silky and the finish is relaxed yet lively and lingering.
POINTS OF INTEREST
From a region dominated by red grapes, well-made white wines from Chateauneuf-du-Pape are a rare treasure. Françoise is the head winemaker and decision maker at the esteemed Mayard family estate and we are excited to share with you a small production made under her own name, the F/R series. ONLY 250 cases produced from a single vineyard called “Les Galimardes”.
