2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, Domaine du Clos des Papes

Freshly sliced fennel on the nose, with honeysuckle and a hint of lavender: this could only be from the south of France. The palate is powerful, supple and very fresh, with wonderful purity of fruit and precise acidity on the finish.

2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, Domaine du Clos des Papes
Domaine du Clos des Papes

Three generations of the Avril family, all named Paul, have worked the land since 1896. Paul Vincent Avril, who runs the estate today, trained at top places such as Chateau Mouton Rothschild before returning to Clos des Papes. He’s known for particular methods, like low yields, no new oak and no filtering, all which contribute to his wine’s complexity. Their cellar is almost a cathedral to fine wine in its grandeur, and befitting of the legendary wines the Avrils continue to produce.
