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
90 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc is similarly colored compared to the 2017 and has a fresh, clean, nicely balanced profile as well as classy stone fruits, crushed citrus and white flowers. It's medium-bodied, has integrated acidity, and terrific purity, as well as the fresher, more moderately concentrated style of the vintage. As with most of the wines here, it’s a field blend of just about every permitted variety." - Jeb Dunnuck (8/16/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The medium to full-bodied 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc offers attractive notes of melon, white peach and lime. A blend of 30% Clairette, 25% Bourboulenc, 22% Roussanne, 20% Grenache Blanc and tiny amounts of Picardan and Picpoul, it's linear and focused rather than plush or rounded, with a crisp, engaging finish." - Joe Czerwinski (30th Sep 2019)
