Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

96 DE / 94+ WA / 94 JD / 94 WS

Low acidity, a little on the heavy side with pear, tarragon, quince, anise and touches of grapefruit and lemon verbena on the finish. Good length and already quite complex, but a little sprawling. Contains roughly equal parts of the six permitted white grapes. Various plots around the appellation, farmed organically, all varieties co-fermented in stainless steel. Drinking Window 2020 - 2036 - Matt Walls, Decanter

The medium to full-bodied 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc boasts impressive concentration and richness, allied to terrific freshness and length. As I was tasting it, I kept shaking my head marveling at how this blend of Bourboulenc, Clairette, Grenache Blanc, Picpoul and Roussanne achieved such a wonderful sense of balance. Hints of anise no doubt play a prominent role in achieving this, enlivening the melon and pear that form the wine's core, to be elegantly replaced on the finish by lingering notes of ripe citrus. Certainly this is one of the most impressive whites I can recall tasting from this benchmark estate. - Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate

Looking first at the white, the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc from the talented Vincent Avril sports a light gold color to go with a beautifully complex, classic bouquet of lemon curd, exotic flowers, sappy green herbs, and crushed stone-like, salty minerality. These all carry to a medium to full-bodied white that has beautiful depth of fruit on the mid-palate of bright spine of acidity, and a fabulous finish. This cuvée has a long track record of aging gracefully and it can be drunk with considerable pleasure today or cellared for 10 to 15 years if you’re so inclined. - Jeb Dunnuck

This has an extroverted display of white peach, green almond and yellow apple flavors that are brightly defined as they're carried by honeysuckle and acacia notes through a plump and juicy finish. Has the energy to cellar a bit as well. Drink now through 2026. 300 cases made, 40 cases imported. - JM, Wine Spectator
