Four generations of Moussets have been winemakers in Châteauneuf du Pape. However, Domaine des Saumades was created in 1995 when Frank and Muriel Mousset created their own domaine. This is a very small domaine with only 2.5 hectares and limited production allowing for excellent quality control. It employs traditional methods for pruning and working the vines and all wines are aged in oak.
Franck and Murielle are a young couple making a modern style Châteauneuf du Pape. Their wines are powerful and fruit driven, with the ability to develop into graceful examples from this region. This white, a mélange of Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Bourboulenc, displays a myriad of flavours as diverse as fresh citrus tones to mouth filling warm vanilla. This is what Châteauneuf du Pape is all about. Rich, yellow stone-fruit aromas combine with a generous body and silky texture. Attractive phenolics on the palate provide a salinity to the wine, giving vibrancy to this warmer vintage style. Drink now to 2023.
