Arnoux Côtes du Rhône Blanc Vieux Clocher
WHY WE LOVE IT
- This is the winery’s traditional Cotes du Rhone Blanc bottling
Varietal Composition: 50 % Grenache blanc, 40 % Clairette, 5 % Roussane, 5 % Viognier
Elaboration: Grapes are picked at optimal ripeness levels. Alcoholic fermentation in temperature contolled vats. After maturing on the fine lees, the wine is bottled and aged 3 months before being released.
Tasting Notes: A powerful wild flowers bouquet assorted with delicate citrus touches graces the nose. In mouth it is fruity while full bodied
Marc and Jean-Francois Arnoux are the newest generation to perpetuate their family’s long history at this traditional domaine that sits next door to the old Vacqueyras church.
The family’s history in Vacqueyras dates back to 1731, and vineyard holdings are now 41 hectares in total, with additional volume supplemented with growing partners who have supplied the family for decades.
Always rich with garrigue, Arnoux’s offerings consistently overdeliver for us, and this is a producer we’ve been working with since our early days.
