Notes from the Winemaker:
A rarity in the region, Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc represents a mere seven percent of the AOC’s output. For this wine, hand-picked and hand-sorted grapes were pneumatically pressed to extract their juice at low pressure. The juice was then fermented with indigenous yeast and sat on the lees for several months before bottling. No malolactic fermentation takes place. The wine is then aged in vats and in barrels (10-20% new), following by early bottling (five to six month after the harvest).

Tasting Notes:
Eye: Very pretty green gold colour, crystal and shiny.
Nose: Really beautiful, elegant, floral and fruity, very elegant nose.
Palate: In tune, a rare balance with a singular brightness, the fruit, with peach and apricot, is enhanced by a freshness and minerality making it very persistent.

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"Inviting, with a whiff of macadamia nut out front, followed by heather, yellow apple, anise and Cavaillon melon flavors. A light kiss of brioche on the finish is deftly done. Clairette, Roussanne, Bourboulenc and Grenache Blanc. Drink now through 2022. 900 cases made." – JM (Nov 15, 2018)

93 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"A white that always delivers, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc (Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Roussanne, Clairette, and the rest Picardan and Picpoul Blanc) offers rocking notes of citrus blossom, liquid rocks, white flowers, and spice. It’s vibrant, racy, and has fabulous balance and purity. It will keep for two-plus decades." - Jeb Dunnuck (8/28/2018)

91 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"Light yellow. Ripe peach, yellow plum, honey, white flowers and a hint of toasty lees on the deeply perfumed, mineral-accented nose. Plush orchard and pit fruit and toasted grain flavors show very good depth, while a chalky mineral edge adds lift and focus. Becomes livelier with air and finishes gently sweet and quite long, displaying building spiciness and a touch of bitter lemon pith." - Josh Raynolds (Oct 2018)

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"A blend of 30% Clairette, 25% Bourboulenc, 22% Roussanne, 20% Grenache Blanc, 2% Picpoul Blanc and 1% Picardan, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is a medium to full-bodied wine with plenty of floral notes up front, pear and melon on the mid-palate and lime and anise on the finish. It's a solid offering that won't disappoint, provided you drink it in its first few years." - Joe Czerwinski (31st Aug 2018)
