About This Wine...

A lovely acacia note leads the way here, with additional accents of honeysuckle, Key lime, white peach and mirabelle plum following quickly. The very bright, racy, mineral-fueled finish sets this apart from the pack, with a long honeysuckle echo. Should age well.

96/100 Wine Spectator 2017

 

Vinified and matured in stainless steel to maintain freshness, the 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is a crisp, medium-bodied wine that boasts aromas of pear and anise. Guava and white pepper appear on the palate, finishing clean and long. Either drink it young and fresh, or do as Paul-Vincent suggests and cellar it for 10+ years, when some honey, petrol and marmalade notes will develop.

91/100 Robert Parker 2017
