One of the top three or four dry whites of the appellation is the full-bodied, fresh 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc La Fontaine. Made from 100% Roussanne, it offers lots of waxy vanillin notes intermixed with notions of honeyed figs, quince and brioche. It should drink well for 2-3 years. This is one of those rare cases where the 2011 is even better than the 2010. ||With impressive holdings in the northern sector of Chateauneuf du Pape as well as an ever expanding, high quality negociant business, brothers Christophe and Sebastian Jaume have taken this estate, established in 1826, to new heights. The estate wines, which are sold under the Domaine Grand Veneur label, are classic, quasi-modern-styled Chateauneuf du Papes that represent brilliant examples of their impeccable viticulture and winemaking. Interestingly, all three cuvees of Chateauneuf du Pape were produced in 2011. That decision appears to be justified by the quality of what I tasted as well as their potential for extended maturity beyond a decade. As for the 2010s, the Alain Jaume offerings and the Domaine Grand Veneur Cotes du Rhone cuvees were all reviewed in my report on the wines of Kysela Pere et Fils in Issue #201. The 2010 Domaine Grand Veneur estate wines, especially the Chateauneuf du Papes, are brilliant. Wine Advocate.October, 2012
