Additional Information on Herzog Selection Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc

Winery: Herzog Selection

Varietal: White Rhone Blend

The aromatic and deliciously flavored blended white wines of France's Rhone region have gone down in history as some of the finest in the world. The careful blending process has been gradually perfected over the centuries, and today, it is mainly Viognier, Rousanne, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc varietal grapes which are used in the production of the blended white wines of the Rhone. These grapes work together beautifully, with all but Grenache Blanc holding delightfully fruity and floral notes, full of summery flavors of honeysuckle and peach, and a relatively low acidity. The Grenache Blanc, on the other hand, is an acidic grape with a high sugar content, and is used in most blended Rhone wines to add body and length to the blend, something which is admired by vintners and wine enthusiasts around the world.

Region: Rhone Valley

The Rhone Valley of southern France is a particularly fascinating wine region, with a history that stretches back to at least six hundred BCE, when the ancient Greeks first began cultivating vines there. The region itself is split into two distinct sub-regions, with the northern sub-region being famed for its production of exceptional Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines, packed full of interesting character and expressing the terroir found there. The southern sub-region is home to an enormous variety of grapes, and produces red, white and rosé wines, and some of the world's most famous and adored blended wines. The continental climate of the region is ideal for growing grapes, and the winds which blow from the Central Massif help temper the heat in the vineyards, leading to very ripe fruits holding plenty of flavor.

Country: France

France is renowned across the globe for its quality wines and the careful expertise which goes into making them, but what is truly remarkable about this relatively small country is the vast range of wines it produces in such huge amounts each year. Not only are the finest red wines in the world said to come from the beautiful regions of Bordeaux and Burgundy, but elsewhere in the country we find the Champagne region, and areas such as the Rhone Valley and the Loire, whose white wines consistently receive awards and accolades by the plenty. This range is a result of the great variety of climatic conditions and terrain found in France, coupled with generations of wine makers working within single appellations. Their knowledge of specific terroirs and grape varieties has, over time, perfected the production of wines within their region, and the end results continue to impress the world to this day.
