Around Châteauneuf-du-Pape there is a landscape of gently rolling slopes and sometimes large plateaus. The characteristic soil is reddish earth covered with round pebbles, small and large: Galets or Caillous roulés. These were transported by the Rhône glacier at the time. In some places the boulder layer is one and a half to two meters thick. The stones ensure that the grapes become fully ripe, because they collect solar heat during the day and radiate it again at night. 13 grape varieties are allowed for making Châteauneuf-du-Pape and the wine is therefore always a blend (composition of different grape varieties). Each variety adds something unique to the wine. White Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a fairly rare, surprisingly beautiful wine of high quality.

Paul Durieu created Domaine Durieu in 1976. It is located in the heart of the village of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, across the road from the old St Theodoric's Chapel. This historic building has had several owners, who have always maintained its authenticity. Originally built by Senozan's Marchioness, in 1615, then granted to Jean Le Power, an Irish nobleman in the wine trade; then become a barrel workshop.

The wine is a composition of 80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 5% Mouverdre, 3% Cinsault and 2% Counoise from 30 hectares of vineyards. The grapes come from the Farguerol plateau, which also contains pebbles. The grapes are harvested manually and partially destemmed. 1 transfer per day, 30 days of maceration and 18 months of maturation in concrete barrels. This is a gourmet wine that releases freshness and balance. Lots of flowers, wood, black fruit, jam and spices on the nose. The spices part comes from the unique terroir.
