Château De La Gardine Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc Cuvée Des Générations Marie-Léoncie


Chateau De La Gardine Chateauneuf Du Pape Blanc Cuvee Des Generations Marie-Leoncie is golden yellow with an opulent and complex nose hinting at dried fruits, gingerbread, honey, white flowers, vanilla and incense. Its palate is full-bodied and voluptuous, the finish long and expressive. The discreet oak adds complexity and harmony but does not upset the balance of the wine in any way.

Château De La Gardine harvests the grapes early for this white Châteauneuf Du Pape to preserve their fresh characters. The Roussanne, which makes up 85% of the blend, is fermented and then aged in new barriques where it rests upon its lees and experiences regular bâtonnage.
