Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc
Châteauneuf-du-Pape is almost always red, only one in sixteen bottles is white. That makes white Châteauneuf a very exclusive white wine. If it is also from top producer Le Clos du Caillou, the party is complete.
Les Safres is a blend of white Rhône grapes Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Roussanne from an average of 40 years old vines. The grapes come from the lieux-dits Pignan and Bédines. The soil here consists of various types of sand, including 'safres', the local name for a compact, sandy terroir. It is this soil type that provides finesse in the wine.
The grapes are harvested by hand and carefully sorted. Fermentation takes place in small wooden barrels. A small number of these barrels are new, the majority have been used. After fermentation, a few months of maturation follow, also in small wooden barrels.
Although there is very little available, we would like to urge you to try to get your hands on a bottle of this special white wine. Les Safres is lush, complex, tropical and highly gastronomic. Think of delicious dishes such as sweetbreads, morrilles, or truffle. We advise you to decant it before serving to make the most of the wine.
