Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc Clos La Roquete 2019, Domaine la Roquette
"This white is perhaps the most downright drinkable young Chƒteauneuf white we have ever tasted: suggestions of hay, yellow flowers, and wet stone soar from the glass, while the plate displays a chalky tension that resolves to silky harmony over time. There is elegance and sophistication to be savored 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 Chƒteauneuf-du-Pape.
Our long-standing partnership with Daniel and Fr‚d‚ric 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.
