La Fagotière, Châteauneuf-du-pape, 2009, white

La Fagotière 2009

La Fagotière is as all wineries from Châteauneuf-du-pape most well known for their reds, but they also do white. This is a very complex, thick but still crisp. Grass, pear, not any fat oils, no minerals. This white is a typical white Châteauneuf-du-pape, maybe a little bit too young still, but […]

Note that bottle […]

Domain La Fagotiere, White, 2007
