Overview

With slightly less than one hectare of Roussanne and Bourboulenc, the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc from Domaine de Marcoux is the smallest cuvée that they make. When the grapes arrive at the cellar they are gently pressed and the juice is allowed to settle for a few days before fermentation in stainless steel tanks. A small portion of the Roussanne will be aged in barrel but the rest will stay in tank on its fine lees. To preserve the freshness of the wine malolactic fermentation is prevented.
