Domaine le Clos du Caillou 2018 Les Safres White (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Cellar Selection

Compared with the more primary, fruit-focused 2017 vintage, this bottling of Les Safres is more savory in style, featuring softer tones of apple and pear edged by layers of crushed stone and smoke. A blend of Grenache Blanc (40%), Roussanne (30%) and Clairette (30%) fermented and matured in oak (20% new), it's a more restrained, classic expression of the appellation's sandy soils. A wine that may show it's complexity and textural dimension further through 2030. Anna Lee C. Iijima
