Le Champ des Lunes - Blanc 2009 - Wine

Blanc
Blanc
These wines come from a "sister" property of the Abbaye, in Cucuron (Vaucluse), a village equally steeped in history. Located on an unusual estate called "Grand Luberon", the vineyard enjoys an interesting location on a superbly exposed outcrop. Produced only in very small quantities, the white Champ des Lunes is mainly made from grenache blanc. This variety of grape is known for its depth and roundness and gives off peach jam aromas of a particular intensity.
