If Chateauneuf-du-Pape's vineyards are best known these days for their great red wines (accounting for 95% of the appellation) mostly from the Grenache grape, connoisseurs will discern in the region's white wines the hallmark of a great terroir. Two parcels on limestone soil have been kept apart in the Clos de l'Oratoire vineyard to create a wine, as delicate as it is rare, that will delight those in search of freshness and mineral character.
