Roger Sabon Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Renaissance 2010
The grapes are gathered with great care and taken to the winepress in crates. Fermentation is carried out at low temperatures (16-180C) in demi-muids (barrels of 600 litres). The wine is matured for six months with weekly batonnage of the lees. Perhaps we have here the wine that was drunk by the Popes in the Middle Ages. It seems indeed that the first wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape were white, faithful to the colour of the Communion wine.
