Laudun produces pleasing red wines, but the quality of its white wines has earned the appellation its pedigree

 Laudun’s free-draining sandy clay terroir gives its white wines vibrant freshness and a tang of acidity, both essential to good balance. Clairette, a grape grown more widely here than elsewhere in the Côtes du Rhône (local soils are better-suited to this varietal), also plays a role in their popularity. Clairette can be successfully blended with Grenache, Roussanne and Bourboulenc.

Grown on these lighter soils, the appellation’s supple, elegant reds have the power and roundness of Grenache and the floral aromas of Syrah. With their excellent flavour potential, the wines are ready to be enjoyed young, but will also age beautifully.

Absolutely delicious
