Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Saint Prefert Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc 2013

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
One of my favorite whites from the appellation, the 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc (80% Clairette, 20% Roussanne) is pure elegance and class, with lively citrus blossom, mineral, lime and hints of honeysuckle all emerging from the glass. Medium-bodied, fresh, layered and yet poised and laser focused, enjoy it over the coming 3-4 years (although it will evolve for longer).

Additional Information on Domaine Saint Prefert Chateauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc 2013

Winery: Domaine Saint Prefert

Varietal: White Rhone Blend

The aromatic and deliciously flavored blended white wines of France's Rhone region have gone down in history as some of the finest in the world. The careful blending process has been gradually perfected over the centuries, and today, it is mainly Viognier, Rousanne, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc varietal grapes which are used in the production of the blended white wines of the Rhone. These grapes work together beautifully, with all but Grenache Blanc holding delightfully fruity and floral notes, full of summery flavors of honeysuckle and peach, and a relatively low acidity. The Grenache Blanc, on the other hand, is an acidic grape with a high sugar content, and is used in most blended Rhone wines to add body and length to the blend, something which is admired by vintners and wine enthusiasts around the world.

Region: Rhone Valley

For over two thousand years, the southern French region of the Rhone Valley has been home to wine-makers and wineries of many different types. The ancient Greeks were the first to discover that a wide range of grape varietals can flourish in the rich soils and micro-climates which typify the region, and little has changed to this day. In the modern age, the Rhone Valley is recognized around the world as the home of excellent quality white, red and rosé wines, as well as some of the most highly respected blended wines on earth. The region is split into two distinctive sub-regions, with the cooler, continental northern sub-region producing primarily Syrah, Marsanne, Roussane and Viognier wines of exquisite quality, and the hotter southern sub-region growing a much wider variety of grapes.

Country: France

It is widely understood and accepted that the finest wines in the world come out of France. Whether you are drinking a vintage bottle from one of the famed Grand Cru wineries of Bordeaux - such as Chateau Margaux or Chateau Lafite-Rothschild - or a more simple and affordable bottle from one of the lesser known appellations in Burgundy, the likelihood is that the wine is packed full of intense and interesting flavors, and has a fine, balanced structure typical of almost all French produce. This reputation for excellence is taken extremely serious by the French, with dozens of regularly updated laws and regulations ensuring the quality and accurate labeling of wines. Such dedication and passion for fine wine, representative of the region in which it is produced, means customers can be assured that when they buy a bottle from France, they are buying something almost certain to please and delight.
