Distinctive, with a bright yellow apple note leading the way, backed by lots of verbena, chamomile and honeysuckle notes before a creamy melon edge drapes the finish. Shows lovely range. Drink now through 2018. 100 cases imported.

94 points, Wine Spectator (Oct 2016)

The 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc is a step up over the 2014 and offers terrific notes of stone fruits, pears and apple blossom in a medium to full-bodied, fresh, lengthy and elegant style.

Pale yellow. Vibrant, mineral-laced aromas of orange zest, green apple, nectarine and white flowers, plus a spicy ginger accent. Taut and energetic on the palate, offering intense, mineral-driven citrus and orchard fruit and honeysuckle flavors complemented by a refreshingly bitter quinine note. Finishes with excellent clarity and solid thrust, leaving floral and bitter pear skin notes behind.
