2019 Clos Saouma Inopia Cotes du Rhone Villages Blanc

$68.00

Grenache Blanc is the fourth most widely planted white grape in France, and the most widely planted white in both the Côtes du Rhône and Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellations. Clos Saouma place a great emphasis on this variety in both their white Châteauneuf and Cotes du Rhone white blends

Rotem and Mounir Saouma own the iconic micro negociant Lucien Le Moine in Beaune and have been one of the most sought-after producers of 1er and Grand Cru Burgundy for some years now. With a passion to own their own vineyards they made the leap and purchased some superb terrior in Châteauneuf-du Pape to start Clos Saouma.  One of the key points of difference with Clos Saouma is that 30% of their production is white wine in a region dominated by red wine production. To give context white represents just 3% of the total production of Châteauneuf- du-Pape.

The blend is mostly Grenache Blanc, along with a touch of Roussanne, Marsanne, and Viognier. Intensely perfumed and vibrant nose of citrus, flowers and an almost salty note. The palate continues with the intensity of flavours and structure and with a beautifully balanced freshness.
