Wine Review

A blend of equal parts Grenache blanc, Roussanne, and Clairette that’s aged half in a combination of new and used barrels, and half in tank, the 2010 Clos Saint Jean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is a very pretty, clean Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc that possesses a solid mix of ripe fruit and edgy minerality on both the nose and palate. Showing subtle tropical fruits, grilled pineapple, and wet stone-like aromas, this medium-bodied, very well done white builds on the palate with more richness than you would expect, but balances it out with racy acidity and solid focus. - Rhône Report
