White wines from Châteauneuf-du-Pape are uncommon wines. Their elegance and aromas live up to the reputation of the appellation.
The 2018 vintage is characterised by exceptional weather conditions. Flowering took place in the best possible conditions, with a historically abundant grape output. A few rainy episodes at the end of the spring complicated things a little with an attack of mildew, but the good weather then settled down until harvest, which took place under idyllic conditions.The wines are beautiful.
This extremely rare wine comes from a 2.5 acre vineyard located within the “clos” around the historical pope’s palace. All of the viticulture is carried out by the Beaucastel team.
Sinards White comes from an area that we call the Clos du Château, near the village of Châteauneuf du Pape. The 2.5 hectare vineyard is located right next to the one of Les Sinards Red.
Diluvial alpine deposits with rolled pebbles on clay.
The alcoholic fermentation and the malolactic fermentation were carried out in 600-litre demi-muids, with the lees being stirred once a week for three months.
Clairette, Grenache blanc, Roussanne
Pretty golden colour with shiny reflections. It is a wine full of refinement and roundness: its nose reveals elegant aromas of almonds, limes and white flesh fruit and its palate has a nice sweetness on notes of citrus and peach. An iodised note with a slight bitterness offers a hint of liveliness which gives structure to this wine.
At 10°C in tasting glasses.
