Chateauneuf du Pape AOC

Château Maucoil’s vineyards are located in the northwest of the Châteauneuf du Pape area, on the left bank of the River Rhône, and grow in the appellation’s three soil types: pebbles, Urgonian and sand.

Grape Varieties :

90% Grenache blanc – 8% Bourboulenc – 2% Clairette

Vineyard :

The vines for the white wine are planted in the Urgonian soil, a limestone terrain suited to their production. The yield is around 25 hl/ha and harvesting is carried out by hand, with the grapes being sorted before vinification.

Winemaking:

After a cold skin maceration and pressing, alcoholic fermentation is maintained 18°C. Malolactic fermentation is prevented in order to preserve the wine’s freshness and acidity. The wine undergo fining and ageing takes place in vat to bring out the varietal aromas and natural volume of this white fine wine.

Tasting note: 

Lovely light gold hue with green tints. This wine is clean and bright. Rich and very fine on the nose with connotations of pear and citrus. This wine is elegant and dense with good persistency and lovely minerality.

Food Pairing:

Enjoy as an aperitif with goat cheese canapes or paired with rich cuisine, shellfish, grilled salmon, brandade de morue (salted cod and potato mash), veal cutlets with chanterelle mushrooms.
