5-4-13 Word On Wine Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc!

By Jonathan Palevsky | Posted in Host Blogs, Word on Wine | No Comments

How cool is it to discover new things.  It is for me!  I had never had Chateauneuf-du-pape whites before and the two we tasted were really nice!  Not cheap…but special.

1)2011 Les Cailloux!  80% Rousanne, 10% Clarette, 10% Grenache Blanc.  $44.  OK it ain’t cheap but Lucien and Andre Brunel don’t work for nothing!  Check out their site it’s pretty cool!  http://www.chateauneuf.dk/en/cdpen10.htm

2)2009 Domaine Font de Michel.  50% Grenache Blanc, 25% Clarette, 20% Bourboulenc  and 5% Rousanne!  $40.  Completely different and completely intriguing.  Check out the show for our reactions.  If you wine store doesn’t have these get them to order them…you will be intrigued…we were.
