Domaine de Beaurenard Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 2015
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Domaine de Beaurenard|
A straight up beautiful white, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc checks in as a mix of 30% Clairette, 20% Grenache Blanc, 25% Bourboulenc, 22% Roussanne, and the rest Picpoul and Picardan. Fresh, long, medium-bodied and beautifully pure, it has classy notes of citrus blossom, crushed rocks and white peach that continue to develop with time in the glass. Brought up mostly in stainless steel, with 18% in barrels (3% of which were new), this is a perfect white to buy a case of for drinking anytime over the coming decade or longer.
An open-knit style, with a lightly toasty backdrop behind notes of fresh-cut peach, apple and melon. Good underlying zip keeps this moving along. Drink now through 2018. 1,100 cases made.
