Domaine des Pères de l’Eglise, Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc "Le Calice de Saint Pierre", Rhone Valley, France 2017 Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc, Roussanne
APRICOT & SANDALWOOD, VIBRANT & VOLUPTUOUS Chateauneuf-du-Pape’s very name inspires cravings for burgundy-black wines brimming with exoticism. Its rare whites, however, are more exotic still and account for less than 10% of the area’s wine. This robustly redolent yet resplendently refreshing offering combines juicy, ripe, golden fruit with a sweet potpourri of flowers, honey, and restrained toast – a golden sunset in the glass. Serving Suggestion: Seared scallops in a buttery white wine sauce w/ rosemary & garlic. Five-spice roasted butternut squash w/ pine nuts & arugula.
