Ripe and very pure, with unadorned Jonagold apple, chamomile and Cavaillon melon notes that sail along, carried by fine minerality, with a long, salted butter-tinged finish. Drink now through 2012. 1,695 cases made.-JM

(46% grenache blanc, 44% roussanne, 9% clairette and 1% bourboulenc): Light yellow-gold. Bright, high-toned, pungent aromas of green apple, pear, honeysuckle and exotic spices are complemented by a honeyed nuance. Lush and sappy on the palate, with powerful orchard fruit flavors and a touch of candied ginger. Finishes juicy and precise, with lingering spiciness and very good length.
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Oct 2011)
Even better (probably due to its additional year of bottle age), the 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is composed of 46% Grenache Blanc, 45% Roussanne and the rest Clairette and Bourboulenc. Abundant notes of honeysuckle, candle wax, ripe melons, pears and pineapple confiture are present in this full-bodied, evolved, quickly maturing white. The 2010 has a decade of life ahead of it, and the 2009 should last 5-6 years.”,,,
