Incorporating less Grenache than normal, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc is a beauty! Aged all in tank (no wood) and never going through malolactic fermentation, it’s beautifully fresh and delineated, with gorgeous apple blossom, white flowers, spice and hints of minerality all emerging from the glass. Medium-bodied and balanced, it can be enjoyed anytime over the coming two decades.|||As always, I had a great visit with Paul-Vincent Avril, and he continues to fashion one of the most elegant and seamless wines in the appellation. Yields here remain absolutely miniscule, with 2012 coming in at an average of 18 hectoliters per hectare, and the 2013s even smaller, at a bankrupt inducing level of 13.5 hectoliters per hectare. His 2012 is certainly one of the shinning successes in the vintage, and his 2013 should also be outstanding, with a Burgundian-like texture and acid profile. eRobertParker.com.October, 2014
Clos de Papes, in the Rhone, is one of the top estates in the region, and in France. Prices and quality of these wines are extremely high. As well as the Clos de Papes red wines, the domaine also produces the Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc, 2007 being considered as their best vintage of recent years.
