Chateau de la Gardine, Cuvee Tradition Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2013
The colour is pale yellow with a green rim. On the nose fine and lively aromas of citrus, thyme and verbena, as well as some delicately spiced notes of liquorice and fennel, all a reminder of the Provencal “garrigue”. In the mouth deliciously crisp, round and aromatic with a very fresh finish. Best to drink now, but can age 2 to 3 years for an evolution towards some more roundness and some waxy and honey aromas.
Light pasta and chicken dishes or big salads will help bring out the best of this delicate wine
