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 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. The “Cuvée Soprano” white is made from Roussanne and White Grenache, lightly aged in oak. It's elegant and well-balanced, the oak enhances the flavors already there.  (By the way, the Soprano isn’t named for the TV show but for music -- another of M. Montagne’s new wines is called Cuvée Tessiture. And also for you Francophones, the name Clapier comes from a Provençal word for stone, a reflection of the terrain, and not the clapiers that hold chickens and rabbits!)
