Senechaux Blanc 2007, Chateauneuf du Pape, Southern Rhone Valley

A blend of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Roussanne that saw some time in barriques. This is as old as I’ve taken my CdP blancs, and I did so with this bottle as a trial of curiosity. Pale yellow colour with developed nose of spritzy pear and lime skins. A dry, medium-bodied wine which still retains a good amount of rich acidity. Clean flavours of lime juice and pear skins. A straight forward wine that shouldn’t be kept any longer. Awesome with seared scallops with diced basil and tomatoes. Drink immediately. 89-90/100.
