Wines with Grenache Blanc

Papa Provençal Vin de France Cuvee V by James Blanc 2015

Grenache Blanc 50%, Clairette 47%, Muscat 3%
This is our own original blend. Made by us... for you! I make it with the assistance of my "Papa Provençal", former vigneron of Domaine de Cassan, and a local winemaker consultant who works with 25 local estates in the Ventoux and Beaumes de Venise and who knows just where to source the best wines to blend to my style. Fruit, freshness and finesse are the pre-requisites; I look for the opposite of people's image of heavy, dense, sweet wines from the Rhône. The white is always light but aromatic with stone and citrus fruits and herbs. It comes from old vines in the Ventoux, farmed basically organically and made and aged traditionally in concrete tank.

Charmasson Vin de France Balazu des Vaussieres Blanc 2013

Grenache Blanc 50%, Clairette, Roussanne, Marsanne, Viognier, Bourboulenc
From Nadia and Christian Charmasson’s biodynamic estate in Tavel, the white shows another face of the Charmasson natural approach to wine making. This is a blend based on Grenache Blanc and really shows the oily, herbal, stone fruit character of the terroir. Wine making is by hand and very simple, some skin contact, no additives whatsoever, no sulfites. The wine MUST have some aeration, being a living wine with energy that’s been kept in bottle for nearly two years!

Certified Biodynamic

Bois de Boursan Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2014

Grenache Bl 35%, Clairette 35%, Roussanne, Bourboulenc
This white is a treasure of old school finesse and terroir purity! Quite different from the many modern white Châteauneuf-du-Papes (or single varietal wines), it achieves this as a result of having never veered away from traditional methods. It's a classic blend of both grape varieties and soils, thus natural complexity and issues from old vines farmed organically. The winemaking is simple, with a light touch, non-interventionist, made and aged in enamel tank for the fruit to express itself clearly. Great freshness and finesse.

Padié Vin de France Milouise 2014

Grenache Gris, Macabeu, Grenache Blanc
The Cuvée name comes from Jean-Philippe's grand-parents Milou and Louise. A brilliant follow up to the one off 5+5 as it turns out, this Grenache Gris dominant, foudre made and aged wine made from very low yielding old biodynamically farmed vines is simply awesome. It possesses a mere 12.16% alcohol and 29 mg/L SO2 Tot, brilliant acidity but is also extraordinarily intense, rich and complex. It perfectly represents Jean-Philippe Padié's craft to produce perhaps the most playful wines of the 5 well-known producers based out of Calce. The third eye on the label seems highly appropriate!
