Wine AdvocateA blend of 40% each Grenache Blanc and Roussanne with 20% Clairette, 20% of the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc was fermented in new oak barriques. Given the intensity of the fruit, it's barely noticeable this vintage, with tangerine, honey and anise flavors taking the lead. It's medium to full-bodied, with a crisp, lime zest finish.
Wine EnthusiastHints of lemon, honey and almond are augmented by a cutting mineral strike in this bright, juicy blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne and Clairette. It's full bodied and silky, lingering on a long, salty finish. Enjoy now-2027.
