A complete wine from du Caillou
Fresh white wine with a pronounced aroma of pear and fresh yellow fruit. Juicy flavor with a round development and mild aftertaste.
Known from the Chanteuneuf du Pape
Old, almost forgotten grape varieties are making a comeback and enriching the wine offering with their original flavors. On the famous Châteauneuf-du-Pape domain Le Clos du Caillou, for example, there are still old vines with Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Bourboulenc in the vineyard.
These grapes often have a hard time competing with aromatic strong grapes such as Sauvignon Blanc. Fortunately, these classics have never disappeared from the better French gastronomy, where they are valued and non-dominant table companions in refined dishes.
Bruno Gaspard makes optimal use of modern vinification techniques to turn these traditional grape varieties into contemporary organic wines. Le Caillou blanc has a juicy taste with a wonderful freshness and is almost naturally bottled without any form of oak maturation.
This dry, fragrant white wine tastes best in its youth, but lovers of ripe notes can easily keep it for up to three years after harvesting. Not only a gastronomically interesting wine, but also suitable as an aperitif.
|Grape variety:||Grenache Blanc 55%, Clairette 35%, Bourboulenc 15%|
|Taste:||elegant & sophisticated|

|What do we think?:||Gerrit: What a complex but beautiful white wine. The grape varieties are old but gold.|
