Overview

With 10 hectares of white varieties planted out of a total of 70 hectares, Château de Vaudieu under the leadership of Laurent Brechet, is somewhat of a specialist in Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc. Laurent’s entry level Blanc is a blend of Grenache Blanc and Rousanne from 25-50 year old vines planted in various terroirs around the 18th century Château – red clay soils with pebbles and gravel, marls and limestone as well as sand. Most of this cuvée is aged and fermented in tank with a small portion of Grenache Blanc and Roussanne aged in 228L French oak barrels.
