"The 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is a mix of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Bourboulenc, and Clairette, with more and more Bourboulenc in the blend starting in 2010. Brought up in barrel, it’s a rich, full-bodied white that has loads of white peach, brioche, and honeysuckle. It’s pure, balanced, and will keep for 10-15 years."

"Light green-tinged yellow. Intense, mineral-accented pear, white peach and Meyer lemon aromas, along with fennel and honeysuckle flourishes. Taut and focused on entry, offering concentrated citrus and orchard fruit flavors that deepen and spread out steadily on the back half. Finishes long and minerally, displaying a repeating mineral note and a lingering suggestion of bitter pear skin."

"The 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is a bit less weighty and rich than the 2016 but equally attractive. Tangerine, orange and lime notes define this medium to full-bodied blend of Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Roussanne, which finishes fresh, clean and zesty. Drink it over the next few years."
