Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Clos St. Jean 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Made from the same blend, the 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc offers an attractive floral character as well as more minerality, but less fruit and exuberance. This attractive white can be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years...90" WA 10/12 "Showing even better than on release, the 2010 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is more serious and concentrated than the 2011. Possessing big minerality, plenty of white peach, and white flower-like qualities on the nose, it is rich and yet fresh on the palate, with both loads of pure fruit and juicy, edgy underlying acidity. It is superb now, yet given the acid and fruit, will continue to age and evolve gracefully for over a decade....92" RR 10/12 "Very fresh, with delicious melon, peach and heather notes and a long, yellow apple-filled finish. Weighty but pure, with excellent definition. Drink now through 2013..91" WS 9/11
