A stylish white with inviting warm, spicey aromas. The full-flavoured palate suggests poached pears and white peaches and a long, lifted finish.

The domaine is located in the heart of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape terroir with the typical stony soil of “galets roulés” (rolled pebbles). A large part of the vineyard is located on the famous plateau de Cabrières, close to Château Montredon. Grapes for the white are from a 5 hectare vineyard in Travaillon. The soils of the vineyard are made up of clay and chalk covered with a layer of the pebbles, which naturally keeps yields low. Vines are 40 years old, the pruning method is Cordon Royat and harvesting is all by hand. Alexandre produces 5 times more white wine than the other producers in Châteauneuf. Manual grape harvest with selective sorting. Fermentation at low temperature (66°F) 21 days in stainless-steel vats. Lees aging for up to 6 months. No malo-lactic fermentation in order to maintain a good acidity level.

The wine is bottled early to keep as much freshness and aromas as possible. Approximately 20% of each variety (Grenache Blanc, Picpoul, Bourboulenc, Roussanne, and Clairette) was used.

Nice on its own or with fuller flavoured pork or chicken dishes and rich seafood starters.
