DOMAINE GIRAUD LES GALLIMARDES CHATEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE BLANC 14
Chateauneuf-du-Pape is best known for soft, seductive, full bodied reds and here is a white to match, which is made from equal parts of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Roussanne. The majority of the wine (75%) was aged for six months in stainless steel with the balance of 25% aged in new 550 litre oak barrels. This dry white Rhone blend offers floral aromas of elderflower with a full bodied, mouth filling textural style and flavours of honey followed by a rich lingering finish.
It drinks well now and will get even better with bottle age. A drinker or a keeper. You decide. Either way, this is a fab investment for your next dinner party or for the cellar.
