Super-fresh and so dynamic. A lovely brisk acidity propels the tangy lime fruit long into the finish. The oak is quite present but well judged and should integrate after a year or so in bottle. Impressive length and finesse.

Bold and exuberant, with good definition to the white peach, quince and fresh melon notes and hint of ginger. Offers a thread of shortbread that adds richness to the round, lush palate, which is deftly offset by stony minerality and savory green herbs on the lengthy finish. Roussanne and Grenache Blanc.

The 2021 Châteauneuf Du Pape Clos De Beauvenir Blanc is also incredible and, in this critic’s opinion, a perfect wine. Coming from a single vineyard just beside the estate and based largely on Roussanne, it has a slightly deeper gold hue as well as Montrachet-like richness in its notes of white currants, flower oil, pineapple, honeyed toast, and crushed stone. Rich, powerful, and concentrated on the palate, it nevertheless stays vibrant, fresh, and pure, with a gorgeous finish that just keeps going.

Whiffs of vanilla and forest floor are rousing on the nose of this robust blend of Roussanne and Grenache Blanc. Vinified in large-format oak and matured partially in new barriques, it’s slightly woody in its youth but there’s a core of crisp stone fruit and citrus flavors that penetrate the palate.

A quintessential expression of white Châteauneuf here. There’s some dried pear and quince at its core, but the wine is dry and finishes long. Well-balanced acidity, and there’s enough concentration in the wine to give it longevity. A very classic expression, with toasted lime on the finish.
