Laudun Chusclan, L’Enfant Terrible, Cotes du Rhône Blanc, Rhone Valley, France, 2018

£10.95

A historic winery, that has given an opportunity to a younger generation of wine makers in the area, hence the name “Terrible Child”. However, don’t be put off. This is a delicious Cote du Rhône Blanc, made from Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Marsanne and Rousanne which are all grapes local to the region. The vineyard is located in the south-east of France on the right bank of the Rhône and whilst they don’t use oak in the process, they do encourage natural yeasts to form which you might just be able to sniff. Great with out roast pork or chicken dinner. Silver Medal, Decanter World Wine Awards 2019
