Châteauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc Clos La Roquète 2013

Chteauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc Clos La Roqute  2013

Ref: A054114

When the Brunier family bought la Roquette in 1986, no one really realised the potential of this extraordinary 40-hectare estate. The domaine is made up from a number of fragmented parcels of very old vines (average age 45 years-old), situated in three distinctive zones on the rocky plateau to the north of the town of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.

Our long-standing partnership with Daniel and Frédéric Brunier has proved extremely fruitful as this is an estate that has leap-frogged into the top division in the past five years or so.

The 2013 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is probably the finest white Châteauneuf to come out of this estate and continues to be one of the best white wines to be found from this appellation. An exceptional honey-suckle and acacia nose (with 25% Roussanne now incorporated in to the blend) leads you in to a very concentrated palate of apricots and peaches, finishing on a finely honed note of acidity. Bravo Daniel, this is another fine accomplishment! The 2013 is a blend of Roussanne (25%), Bourboulenc (10%), Grenache Blanc (30%) and Clairette (35%).

Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
A fantastic white Burgundy from Jean-Marc Morey, Côte de Beaune, which exhibits a purity of rich fruit (coupled with a mouth-tingling freshness) that is rare to find.

Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
