Costières de Nîmes: Château Roubaud Blanc 2022
A refreshingly unoaked Costières de Nîmes blanc from the Molinier family. 'Cuvée Plaisir' is made from 60% Roussanne and 40% Grenache Blanc - this wine makes an ideal summer aperitif and stands up well to seafood - a garlic-rich brandade de morue would be just the ticket!
This sapid, dry white wine has a delicate wild flower bouquet and mid-weight orchard fruit palate with subtle notes of white pepper and minerals. The Molinier's Château Roubaud is a terrific one-stop shop for characterful red, white and rosé Nîmes wines.

Château Roubaud (Guillaume Molinier)
Château Roubaud has been in the Molinier family for five generations and, today, owners Françoise and Guillaume Molinier look after over 50 hectares on the western flank of the Parc naturel régional de Camargue.
