Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Clos la Roquete 2020 F&D Brunier
We tried this recently and found it to be possibly the most drinkable young CndP we have ever tasted. Wonderfully aromatic with spring flowers and flint on the nose with a silky and harmonious palate. It's utterly gorgeous and must be savoured immediately.
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 Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
Our long-standing partnership with Daniel and Frederic 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.
