Clos Saouma Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Omnia 2019
Omnia, meaning ‘ALL’ is a blend albeit 80% Grenache with the rest made up with the other 12 varieties. It’s a blend of five villages from 7 different vineyards. Cold soaked for 7/11 days with a mixture of wholebunch and crushed grapes then allowed to warm up when ferment starts naturally. Strictly no pumping over of pigeage ‘Why do you want to chase colour, do you drink or taste it?’ as Mounier tells me. Free run and pressings separated and aged in Demi mud (500ltrs) new and aged, Foudre (2300 litres), cement natural eggs and cement tank. NO RACKING or sulphur of 2 years whilst aging.
Omnia’s largest parcel of the blend comes from Pignan. Mounir has been insistent on this from the start as he believes this site offers the most elegant expression of CNDP. They blend this with grapes from the four other communes of Chateauneuf (Pignan is in Courthezon) being Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Centre), Orange (North), Bedarrides (South East) & Sorgues (South).
Burgundy to CNDP – Blending
Mounir & Rotem a wanted to honour the traditions of this appellation by ensuring Omnia, their estate CNDP represented a parcel from each of the communes, a patchwork of terriors to blend. They own currently 8.4 Hectares across CNDP in Red.
