About

93

"A big step up, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Pure Roussanne offers terrific citrus, white fruits, and sautéed apple nuances as well as a fresh, very clean, crisp style on the palate. It’s moderately concentrated, yet has beautiful purity. It’s going to gain richness with a year in bottle as well."

91 Joe Czerwinski - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Roussanne Pure was atypically tight and unyielding for this cuvée, with only modest peppery spice and an attractive orange-rind bitterness on the long finish. I have high hopes it will prove my rating conservative in time."

Product Description:

An exotically perfumed bouquet evokes ripe citrus and pit fruits, tarragon and honey, complemented by a building, smoky mineral accent. Juicy and deeply concentrated, offering intense tangerine, poached pear and honeysuckle flavors that pick up a sweet vanilla nuance on the back half. Smoothly combines power and vivacity and finishes on a vibrant mineral note, showing superb energy and sappy persistence
