Domaine Pelaquie Cotes du Rhone Villages Laudun

Domaine Pelaquie Laudun is a classic white wine from the Rhone made from a blending of Clairette Blanc, Bourboulenc, Grenache blanc, Viognier and Roussane.
Laudun is a village that lies on the western side of the Rhone not too far from Avignon. The Cotes du Rhone Villages Laudun appellation encompasses vineyards around Laudun and the neighbouring villages of Tresques and Saint Victor la Coste.
It is here that Luc Pelaquie, the current custodian of the family estates, crafts his beautiful white with its heady aromas, subtle mouth-feel and long, lingering finish.
This is certainly a wine that every wine lover should get to know, especially those who believe that only red wines from the Rhone area are worth drinking.
This wine was first brought to our attention by the owner and sommelier of the charming restaurant in Roaix called Le Grand Pre.
