Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, Clos de L'Oratoire des Papes, Ogier

A blend of 30% Grenache Blanc, 30% Clairette, 30% Roussanne and 10% Bourbalenc. The Rousanne is barrel-fermented and then aged for four months on the lees whilst the other grapes are fermented in stainless steel. It has an expressive nose of pear, lychee, elderflower with hints of vanilla and hazelnut; the palate shows Mirabelle plum followed by a rich mid-palate leading onto notes of other ripe fruits on the finish.
