Clairette grape variety

Clairette is a typical Mediterranean grape variety, giving a wine with high alcohol, generally low acidity, usually to drink young except when it comes from specific terroir, like the magnificent Château Simone close to Aix-en-Provence. The grape is grown in Rhône and Provence where it is usually part of the blend, bringing an alcoholic structure and aromas of apple, fennel and linden.
