Nice full body white The Quiot family owns various vineyards in the important "villages" in the southern Rhone region, including Vacqueyras, Gigondas, Châteauneuf du Pape. But the family also owns the beautiful winery Domaine Houchart in Provence, mainly focused on the production of rosé. The Quiot family also makes excellent white wines. The Châteauneuf du Pape les Combes d'Arnevels white 2017 is a perfect example. A lemon-yellow wine composed of bourboulenc, clairette, grenache blanc and roussanne. It smells white flowers, peach, hazelnuts and lemon. A full bodied wine, nicely balanced, between plumpness and juicy acididity. Delicious with fish dishes and lobster. But it also works well with fresh and aged (goat) cheeses.
