Only about seven percent of Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine is white. Grenache Blanc dominates the white blends, usually buttressed by aristocratic Roussanne, and a few less familiar grapes. La Nerthe, a venerable property that dates back to the 1500s, is famous for elegant, decadently rich wines that age magnificently, and this exotic white is no exception. The precise blend in the powerful, ripe vintage of 2015 is 45% Grenache Blanc, 31% Roussanne, with Clairette, and Bourboulenc from vineyards organically certified in 1998. The wine rests on aroma- and texture-boosting lees, adding creamy emollience to the parade of enticing flavours. The nose is a perfumed delight, with honeysuckle, apricot, smoky beeswax, and chamomile. Rich and ‘gras’ (a nice way of saying fat!) in the mouth, you’ll note peachy flavours, fennel, dried mixed peel, and botanical complexity. It shows both earthy and fruity facets, with a surge of fresh acidity that keeps the wine alive and energetic. The finale is all stones and dust, an unmistakable and eloquent terroir statement. Decant this wine for half an hour, and pair with foie gras, a savoury entrée like tender veal escalope with wild mushroom-thyme cream sauce, or triple cream cheese.
