Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Bourboulenc. Full-bodied and impeccably balanced, it has a deep yellow colour. White flowers, ripe white and exotic fruits on the nose, the palate is richly textured with good balance - citrus, pear and peach flavours with power through to the finish. Decanting for an hour beforehand will do this wine the world of good.
