Laurent’s oldest parcel of Roussanne is located on a distinctly unique soil – a grey limestone clay with inclusions of flint. This tiny, low yielding plot used to go in its entirety into the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, but Laurent suspected that it could be a unique expression of this odd terroir. So in 2015 he began segregating a small amount of fruit from this parcel to be elaborated as a limited cuvée of 600 bottles. After pressing Laurent selects a portion of the juice to ferment in a couple of new 228L French oak barrels. The wine ages in the same barrels for 9 months before bottling.
