WINEMAKER'S NOTES:

Nice pale yellow, green tints with a lot of brilliance. The nose isintense and complex with apricot, peach and sweet spices. On thepalate perfect balance, between roundness and sweetness, wood isfine, elegant and very well integrated. The finish is long on apricotand candied fruit.

Blend: 58% Roussanne, 32% Clairette, 8% Grenache blanc, and 2% Bourboulenc.

TASTING NOTES:

The top white of the estate, and coming from the Clos de Beauvenir lieu-dit, which lies just to the south of the estate, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Clos de Beauvenir is the best vintage of this cuvee I’ve tasted. Comprised of 58% Roussanne, 32% Clairette, 8% Grenache Blanc and a splash of Bourboulenc, fermented and aged almost all in barrel (one-third new), it sports drop-dead gorgeous aromas of melon, buttered citrus, white flowers, almond paste and hints of honey to go with a full-bodied, incredibly fresh and focused profile on the palate. While this cuvee always delivers uncommon richness, it’s the purity and focus here that sets it above other vintages. Again, it will age (although typically, I think of the traditional cuvee as being more age-worthy), yet I’d still pair it up with a classy meal over the coming 3-4 years.
