Last of the whites, the 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is a riper, sexier wine from the south that has lots of white peach, marmalade and honeysuckle aromas and flavors. You can tell this was a warm vintage, yet it has terrific purity and freshness, with a layered, balanced texture. It’s serious stuff to drink over the coming decade. ... More details

The 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is a new wine for this historic firm. Put together from eight suppliers' wines, it's a full-bodied, round effort that reflects the ripe vintage without being flabby or overly alcoholic. Subtle melon, tangerine and spice notes wash across the palate in a silky wave in this blend that includes 45% Grenache Blanc, 25% Roussanne and smaller amounts of Clairette, Bourboulenc, Picpoul and Picardan. Only the Roussanne saw oak (50% new), accounting for the wine's texture, while the rest of the varieties aged in stainless steel.

Varietal: White Rhone Blend

The Rhone region of France has long been associated with some the finest blended white wines on earth, with centuries of expertise resulting in a wine industry which is based around the careful blending of a few extremely high quality grape varietals. Commonly, wines from this region use Viognier, Rousanne, Marsanne and Grenache Blanc varietals in the production of their superb white wines, with the winemakers skilfully blending different quantities of two or more of these grapes in order to achieve a perfect balance of flavor, acidity and body. The wines which are produced from these excellent varietals are usually highly aromatic, holding summery, bright flavors of peach, pear, honeysuckle and various spices, and are considered to be amongst the most elegant and enjoyable in the world.

Region: Rhone Valley

There are few wine regions in the world with a history as long and illustrious as that of the Rhone Valley in France. For over two thousand years, wines have been produced in this region, benefited by the excellent, mineral-rich soils of the region, and the varied climate which allows a wide range of grape varietals to grow. The Rhone Valley is now split into two quite separate regions, with the north part being characterized by its cooler, continental climate and the limited number of grape varietals grown, and the southern sub-region being perfect for growing a wide range of grapes, and producing an exciting number of different wine styles. The Rhone Valley is associated with elegant, flavorful wines, and certain grape varietals such as Viognier and Syrah, which are adept at expressing the finer features of their terroir.

Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country.
