Average critic rating : 93.0 points



Still not in bottle, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape Magis Blanc Magis tastes like a top-tier Chablis, with fantastic, flinty minerality, white flowers and citrus blossom aromas and flavors, medium-bodied richness and awesome purity and focus. Getting a big “Wow” in the notes, this blend of 75% Grenache Blanc, 10% Clairette, 10% Bourboulenc and 5% Roussanne is still aging, on lees, in demi-muids, and is scheduled to be bottled in September. I’d drink it in its first 3-4 years of life, but it should evolve for well over a decade.||While I was able to taste a number of 2013 samples, I wasn’t impressed, nor able to really tell what cuvees those would go in, so I opted to leave those reviews out. eRobertParker.com.October, 2014
