Hints of white peach, pineapple, melon and lime appear on the nose of the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc, a tank-aged blend of Clairette and Roussanne. It's medium to full-bodied, showing some warmer, riper notes of peach on the mid-palate, then balancing those with hints of white pepper and citrus on the long, mouthwatering finish.

Always a terrific effort, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc boasts a light gold color as well as a vibrant nose of juicy citrus, tart pineapple, white flowers, and a kiss of honeysuckle. With medium-bodied richness of bright spine acidity and terrific balance, it’s a fabulous Châteauneuf du Pape white to enjoy over the coming 2 to 4 years.

Quite a firm yellow robe; has a good, clear traditional Châteauneuf aroma founded on ripe white fruit with an implicit oiliness of the South, and a secure depth. It’s not overtly aromatic, is more de la terre than the sky. The palate links well, runs with classy gras, great upholstery, the richness prolonging well, into a more upbeat, citrus tang finale. This purrs along most winningly, is a top 2019 Châteauneuf. It merits a large glass and a cracking fish: it’s STGT, ace Châteauneuf that is broad and notably long, really well orchestrated and true. There’s a hint of reduction, so it can be decanted.
