Average critic rating : 92.0 points



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. ||This admirably run estate has essentially been practicing biodynamic farming for nearly 15 years, but they were not certified as biodynamic until 2011. Wine Advocate.October, 2012
