Critical Acclaim

JD95 Jeb Dunnuck August 28, 2018

"Richer than the 2017, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc comes from a vintage described as “extraordinary” by Sophie Armenier, who compared it to 1990. The same two-thirds Roussanne and one-third Bourboulenc brought up in demi-muids and tank, this beauty reminds me of a top Hermitage Blanc with its building minerality and rock star nose of buttered citrus, honeycomb, spice, and flowers. Deep, rich, and opulent, with full body, it nevertheless has terrific acidity and stays balanced, pure, and vibrant on the palate." (95 pts.)

RP93 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 31st Oct 2017

"This biodynamically run estate has only one hectare of white grapes. The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is roughly 70% Roussanne and 30% Bourboulenc, although Sophie Armenier did admit that there’s probably some Grenache Blanc and Clairette as well. One batch of Roussanne was fermented in a single oak barrel, while all of the other grapes went into stainless steel. Honeyed pineapple on the nose is focused and channeled by vibrant lime flavors on the medium to full-bodied palate, drawing to a long, briny finish." (93 pts.)

VN93 Vinous Oct 2018

"Limpid green-tinged yellow. Vibrant citrus fruit, floral and mineral qualities on the highly perfumed nose; a hint of ginger adds a spicy edge. Racy and precise on the palate, offering intense Meyer lemon, bitter pear skin and brioche flavors that deepen steadily with aeration. Concentrated yet lithe as well, showing impressive energy and tension on a long, sappy finish that leaves a suave honeysuckle note behind." (93 pts.)

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
