2012 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, Domaine du Clos des Papes

Fragrant and pure on the nose, with soft fragrant floral notes arising from the glass. On the palate, a delicious core of sweet peach and apricot fruit is layered with notes of spice, white flowers and subtle kernel. There is weight here, but beautifully frame by a firm mineral backbone and juicy fresh acidity. Elegant and delicious, this is a real star.

Looking at Paul-Vincent’s Chateauneufs, and a rich, voluptuous example of this cuvee that possesses great acidity, the 2012 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc offers up ripe stone fruits, white currants, honeysuckle and licorice to go with a full-bodied, rich and powerful profile on the palate that somehow stays beautifully fresh and focused. It’s a gorgeous wine that can be consumed in its fresh and vibrant youth, or cellared for a decade or two. It’s a knockout white that should not be missed! Drink now-2032. 94 points, Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate 31st October 2013
