Egg-shell white with hints of bright gold. A broad aromatic palate with notes of white fleshy fruits (peaches, pears etc.), yellow flowers (gorse, broom etc.) and soft spices (vanilla). The fine and rounded mouth feel shows great elegance. It is a rich and powerful with a classy and long finish.
The 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes blanc is 100% Grenache blanc made from 57-year-old vines and aged on its lees in new oak. The wine does not show any wood whatsoever, which is amazing, but it does display loads of honeyed citrus, white currants, grapefruit and a hint of apricot. Exotic, medium to full-bodied, and refreshing at the same time, this is an impressive wine that should drink nicely for several years, if not longer.
Bright yellow-gold. Intensely perfumed, expansive aromas of pineapple, poached pear and melon, with complicating notes of honey and candied ginger. Very rich, palate-coating orchard and pit fruit flavors are perked up by a zesty note of orange pith. Finishes smooth and long, with resonating spiciness and a late note of candied anise.
