    Winemaker's Notes:

    Roussanne 45%, Grenache 46%, Clairette 9% & Bourboulenc 1%. The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc exhibits honeted, waxy, white currant, melon and pear notes, crisp acidity and plenty of freshness as well as fruit. Drink it over the next several years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    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.

    The Wine Advocate

    For all its oak scents and deep yellow color, this is remarkably lively, the wood infusing the fruit the way that a sprinkle of nutmeg adds another facet to a peach pie. Smooth and waxy with caramel warmth, it's rich yet not heavy, ending on a citrus note that's clean and fresh. Give it a year to meld; this should show well with next Thanksgiving's turkey.

    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.
