Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc, Pierre Andre AC (Rhone)
An intense and serious dry white from the Rhone, with a golden colour and fresh herbaceous style. Made from old vine Bourboulenc and Clairette grapes, carefully blended with younger Roussanne and white Grenache - all planted in lighter, sandier soils. The Andres' white wine is bottled (unfiltered) in the spring. Exhibiting complex fruit characters this is a wine of considerable finesse and sophistication, which is drinking at its best currently.
