Wine Review

Clos Saint-Jean’s white wines continue to improve with each vintage. Their finest to date is the 2011 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, a 500-case blend of equal parts Roussanne, Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Bourboulenc that is aged half in barrel and half in tank. It reveals plenty of honeysuckle, tangerine, white currant and quince notes in its full-bodied personality. -Wine Advocate
