per bottle

Tasting Notes

Heralded by a golden colour and an intense nose that announces white fruit flavours of peach and apricot.

The palate is warm with hints of white flowers and almonds.

Domaine Pontifical

Family owned since the 1920s, this 15-hectare vineyard is now run by Francois Laget. Grenache is the dominant grape, complemented by Syrah, Mourvedre and Cinsault, with some particularly delicious white Chateauneuf du Pape made in small quantities.
