This week: Châteauneuf-du-Pape blanc
Name 3 producers and create a dish to pair with each dependent upon the cépage and winemaking.
Domaine de la Solitude's CDP Blanc is fantastic! Clairette-forward (40%), Grenache Blanc (25%), and Roussanne (35%) all vilified separately. Roussanne undergoes ML fermentation, and the wine sees 10mos. of lees aging. For me, a producer that drinks in a class above its own routinely, they share a driveway with Vieux Telegraphe. New Orleans Charbroiled Oysters and Alaskan Halibut with ramp pesto are a few favorites for pairings.
