Winery Notes:
The young and diligent Xavier Rolin is the 5th generation of vignorons in his family. Xavier is a cousin of the famous Perrin owners of Chateau Beaucastel in Courthezon. His family domaine is based in the village Chateauneuf du Pape very close to the Orange border. This district of the appellation is called Berthaude, thus the name Maison la Berthaude. Xavier’s family owns 40.5 total hectares. The domaine's vineyards span out over 72 individual parcels, each sub-plot has its own distinct reflection of “terroir”. And while some of the vines are more than 100 years old, the average vine age at the domaine is about 60 years old; 85% of the vines are over 22 years of age.

85% Viognier, 15% Grenache Blanc / Marsanne Blend; vinified in stainless steel. Exotic nose of melon, apricot and honeysuckle. Juicy and ripe on the palate displaying powerful fruit, spice and minerality.
