Domaine des Sénéchaux white
Situated on the commune of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the white grape varietes count for 9 % of the total surface under vine for the Sénéchaux vineyards. The vines are exposed south, south-west and their surface soils consist of sandy clay-limestone.
White vines are treated with the same care and attention as the red wines. The press is filled using a gravity system and the grapes are crushed gently. The Roussanne and Clairette varieties undergo skin maceration. Cold settling is then followed by temperature controlled vinification (18° C).
The Domaine des Sénéchaux white wine is made from 33 % Roussanne, 29,5 % Grenache Blanc, 29,5 % Clairette and 8 % Bourboulenc.
