    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2009 vintage of this wine was ranked #10 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2010

    Critical Acclaim:

    A bracing, pure style with a tightly coiled score of talc, honeysuckle , kaffir lime and white peach notes. Sleek and racy, with a stony accent inlaid on the finish, adding extra detail and range. Shows the latent depth and the purity to develop steadily in the cellar. Drink now through 2021.

    The 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is composed of all the white varietals permitted in Chateauneuf du Pape. Although it is not put through malolactic fermentation and sees no oak whatsoever, this cuvee has proven to age remarkably well. The 2011 exhibits lots of poached pear, honeysuckle, quince and white currants as well as a full-bodied, powerful (15.6% natural alcohol) style. It reveals lots of glycerin along with wonderful freshness, acidity and purity. The 2011 should last for 10-12 years.
