ABOUT THE WINE
In 2007 Marceau (Marc) Cellier decided to retire and hand over his vineyards to his three children (Ludovic, Julien and Benoit) and Nathalie (Ludovic's wife). They are the 8th generation of the Cellier family to work the vine and to make top class Rhone wines. Domaine les 3 Cellier was thus born on August 1st, 2007, with the breakup of Domaine Saint Benoit. The Cellier family retained 13.4 hectares of wines, all within the Chateauneuf-du-Pape appellation.

TASTING NOTES
Production is very low, less than 100 cases per vintage. This wine has a pale yellow colour tinted with a hint of green. The distinctive personality of Roussanne gives a powerful and complex wine, harmoniously balanced, with aromas of flowers and spice - paprika and fenugreek. The mouth is powerful but pleasant with a final soft and unctuous, yet dry, finish. This wine can be kept in a good cellar for 8 to 10 years.

FOOD PAIRING
Perfect with scallops or ravioli stuffed with goat cheese and honey. It should be drunk at a temperature between 12° to 14° C - a tad less cold than other white wines.

FRIARWOOD SAYS
Less well-known than the red wines from this appellation, the whites are something of a hidden gem; full-bodied and wonderfully complex, this is a prime example of how utterly beautiful they can be.
