Brilliant straw. Meyer lemon, pear and a hint of white flowers on the fragrant nose, along with subtle anise and ginger notes in the backround. Silky and sharply focused on the palate, showing good heft to the fresh orchard and citrus fruit flavors. Unfolds steadily on the finish, leaving behind smoky mineral and bitter lemon pith notes. 91 pts
From the sandy soils, clairette, roussanne and grenache blanc in equal parts. No additions and a year on lees. Creamy, toasty and very complex. Layered and texturally dense. White peach, succulent palate. Oak builds. Fresh. Drink now. 94 pts
This white is perhaps the most downright drinkable young Châteauneuf white we have ever tasted: suggestions of hay, yellow flowers, and wet stone soar from the glass, while the plate displays a chalky tension that resolves to silky harmony over time. There is elegance and sophistication to be savored immediatly.
(89-91) : Limpid straw. Mineral-tinged pear and melon aromas are sharpened by hints of ginger and lemon zest. Ripe citrus and orchard fruit flavors show good richness, back-end focus and cut thanks to a core of juicy acidity. Finishes minerally and taut, leaving behind a bitter pear skin note.
