Tasting notes: Hailing from the southern Rhone, neighbouring Chateauneuf du Pape, comes this luscious and aromatic blend of Roussane, Grenache Blanc, Clairette and Bourboulenc. Classic white-Rhone grapes but given an extra twist of personality under the hand of local star winemaker Julien Mus. Perfumed and floral and ripley fruited, with lift coming from the Clairette. No oak use, allowing a pure and driven style. An intruiging wine, for the interested drinker.
Producer: Domaine de la Graveirette Julien Mus founded the Domaine de la Graveirette in 2005, with the intent and desire to craft his own wines, ones of quality and character. More than a decade later the winery remains committed to that early mission and have since begun farming and vinifying biodynamically (certified by Demeter since 2015). Domaine de la Graveirette winery is nestled between the towns of Orange, Avignon, and Carpentras in the Vaucluse.
