The 2021 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc might be one of the best examples of this white that' I've tasted. Incredible pear white flowers salty minerality and hints of ripe citrus define the bouquet and it's medium to full-bodied on the palate has remarkable purity flawless balance and a great finish. A blend of Clairette Roussanne Grenache Blanc and Bourboulenc that's brought up mostly in foudre (there's a small part in demi-muids and barrel) it deserves 2-3 years in the cellar and will have two decades or more of overall longevity.


Wine Spectator: 94 Points

Full and broad with a well-structured framework for the green plum and citrus cream flavors while subtle fleur de sel and buttercream notes stream along. The texture starts out glycerol smooth then is propped up by chalky slightly bitter tannins to pleasing effect. Fresh with good intensity and balance through the powerful finish. This has a long life ahead in the cellar. Clairette Grenache Blanc Bourboulenc and Roussanne. Drink now through 2035.
