Grenache Blanc

Filter 
Grenache Blanc

Grenache Blanc is a white wine grape most famously grown in France’s Rhone Valley region, but originated in Spain.  In Spain, Grenache Blanc is still used in Rioja and Navarre. In addition, it is the 4th largest crop grown in France and is used in the Chateauneuf du Pape blends. Grenache Blanc is relatively easy to grow as it resists drought naturally, is generally hearty, and ripens fairly early. Climates with warm days and cool nights are ideal for Grenache Blanc and will bring out intensity and depth. It can be a strong contender as a single-variety wine, displayed in wines produced along the California Central Coast, but its characteristics make it an ideal blending element. With high alcohol and low, but crisp, acidity, Grenache Blanc will bring balance to any blend. The nose will often display as green apple, mandarin orange, mineral, and peach. In some cases, Grenache Blanc will have a slight finish of licorice. When blended with Roussane, Grenache Blanc will give flavor and length and its acid will balance the rich sweetness.

Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2018

Clos de l'Oratoire des Papes Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is made from 25% Grenache Blanc, 25% Clairette, 25% Roussanne, 25% Bourboulenc

The color is a beautiful golden yellow with glints of green. The nose expresses the specificity of this wine, with aromas of white fruit (apple, pear), orange blossom, aniseed and lemon and woody undertones. The palate has much presence, is very fruity, with finesse, breadth and sweetness, but retaining a good balance of freshness.


This wine is ideal with fish, crayfish, pike 'quenelles' with with 'Nantua' sauce, or spicy dishes.

Review:

Ripe and enticing, with lots of white peach, green melon and yellow apple flavors laced with notes of shortbread and honeysuckle. A stony echo adds spine and length. Should unwind nicely. Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Roussanne. Best from 2021 through 2023. 1,666 cases made, 1,250 cases imported.
