Wine Advocate 92 Rating
There are just over 200 cases of the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Roussanne, sourced from a limestone-rich parcel in the Beau Renard lieu-dit. Mostly barrel fermented and aged in new oak, it’s a full-bodied, luscious wine that some tasters may find too rich and too ripe (I certainly found that to be the case last vintage). This year, in addition to the honeyed waves of tropical fruit, pineapple and tangerine, there’s a zesty edge of citrus that helps drive the wine forward and provides energy on the finish. It should drink well for 6-7 years, although why wait?
Must be ordered.
