This well-priced southern Rhône white is bursting with vibrant peach and apricot flavours. If it hailed from any of its neighbouring regions, it'd cost a pretty penny. But from the often overlooked Vaucluse, it delivers fabulous flavour and value.

Beyond the Label
Refreshing citrus core, round notes of bright peach and apricot
Intense fragrant white flowers, fresh peach, citrusy touch
Welcome to the Vaucluse, a southern Rhône wine region, just on the edge of Provence. Its sunny vineyards nurture an array of native grapes like Grenache, Clairette, Roussanne and Colombard, that make vibrant, bright-fruit whites. The nearest neighbours are famous wine regions Rasteau, Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Châteauneuf-du-Pape. It’s lucky enough, too, to enjoy the same climate and have similar soils. In the case of Willem the Silent and Châteauneuf, it shares an award-winning winemaker as well. Thierry Ferlay has won scores of Gold medals for many of his wines – from vins pays to Châteauneuf. Enjoy the tantalising aromas of fragrant white flowers, and abundant, fresh peach and apricot fruit. Ideal as an aperitif or with risottos.
"If you think the Rhône's all rich, warming reds, think again. Here's a delicious, fruit-filled white"
Mark Hoddy Buyer for the Rhône
