Pure - White
Domaine La Barroche - Châteauneuf-du-Pape
100% Clairette
Cuvée endowed with a great finesse and delicacy, Pure White from Domaine La Barroche delivers fresh and spicy floral notes, light and greedy aromas of fennel and star anise. Both mineral and pure, it offers a lot of energy and tension in the mouth. Round without being fat, it is a gracious wine that will reveal its fullness and purest expression if decanted.
100% Clairette, this wine is a tribute to one of the oldest grape varieties of Provence, which was planted in the appellation in the 14th century, just like the family estate. Composed of very fine sand of marine origin, and red clay, the terroir of Pialons is characterized by a great fineness and a richness in iron oxide which provide the vine with an exceptional substratum in water and mineral elements. This geological particularity allows the elaboration of an aromatic palette of extreme elegance and a fine and silky touch of mouth expressing a lot of freshness.
This cuvée has been elaborated with the greatest care, taking into account the environment and the stars. In the vineyard, Domaine La Barroche uses natural fertilizers, harvests by hand and makes a rigorous selection of the grapes. In the cellar, this wine is aged for 15 months in ½ muid on lees.

Made from 100% Clairette, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Pure Blanc sports a medium gold hue as well as a terrific nose of caramelized peach, orange blossom, toasted spices, white flowers, and a kiss of background barrique. With medium-bodied richness, a layered, elegant texture, and outstanding length on the finish, it has come together nicely from barrel and can be enjoyed today or cellared for a solid 10-12 years if you're so inclined.
