Château de Clapier White

Château de Clapier White

New Vintage!  This blend from the Luberon is crisp, yet still has the roundness of other Rhône whites. In addition to poultry and seafood, this wine pairs nicely with spicier cuisines like Mexican, Indian, and Thai.

About This Wine:
Located in the village of Mirabeau in the Luberon, this family vineyard was owned by the Marquis de Mirabeau until the French Revolution. The property was purchased in the 1880s by an ancestor of the current owner and winemaker, Thomas Montagne. The Côtes du Luberon is in the extreme southeastern part of the winemaking Rhône Valley, and Luberon wines are not as well known in the U.S. as Côtes du Rhônes (even with the publicity from a not-very-good movie with Russell Crowe about the region). Although Clapier was well-reviewed in the latest Guide Hachette, the winery has never before exported to the U.S. M. Montagne makes traditional Luberon wines along with new vintages outside of the traditional – and traditionally approved – formulations. Refreshing as an aperitif - but also suitable for food pairing, Since the white has less Clairette grapes than other Rhone whites, it is crisper, but still has the roundness of the other Rhone whites – the Roussane grapes that grows in the Luberon has some of the characteristics of Sauvignon Blanc without the grassy notes.
