About

92

"A blend of 60% Grenache Blanc, 35% Clairette, and 5% Bourboulenc that is aged half in tank and half in barrel, the 2011 Domaine Pierre Usseglio & Fils Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is a round, fleshy and supple white that delivers plenty of lemon rind, citrus, and minerality to go with a medium-bodied, upfront, delicious, and easy drinking mouth feel. While straight up fun to drink, it stays fresh and lively on the palate and has class. Enjoy bottles over the coming 3-4 years."

90 Wine Spectator

"Has a crisp edge, with jicama and star fruit notes framing the core of white peach and nectarine flavors. A melon rind edge adds nice bracing length on the finish. Drink now through 2013. 200 cases made. — JM"
