2012 Côtes du Rhône Villages, La Cadène Blanc, Domaine Chaume Arnaud

Description

Domaine Chaume Arnaud is one of the leading properties in the modish Southern Rhône village of Vinsobres, the very name of which, beyond its gentle oxymoronic components, betrays the region’s long-standing oenophilia. Philippe and Valérie achieved full biodynamic accreditation in 2009 and their wines sing a distinctly Mediterranean song, but with a descant of real purity.

Five percent of Roussanne is added to the traditional blend of Marsanne and Viognier, adding even more aromatic complexity to an already impressively perfumed wine. Honeydew melon, fig and quince are all evidenced, with notes of verbena and gingerbread and a hint of spice for good measure. This wine is a fantastic ambassador for all that is good in a hitherto undervalued white wine category.
Simon Field MW - Wine Buyer

The Chaume Arnauds are high achievers it seems; the eldest son of Philippe and Valérie , Rafael is now a full time first team  pro at Clermont Ferrand, one of the better French rugby union teams, by all accounts. Meanwhile the other son, also built like a second row forward, is helping to take the property to new heights of excellence. Full biodynamic accreditation from the 2009 vintage underlines intent and in 2012 we have a perfect showcase for the  fashionable  appellations of  Vinsobres.
