A big step up, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Pure Roussanne offers terrific citrus, white fruits, and sautéed apple nuances as well as a fresh, very clean, crisp style on the palate. It’s moderately concentrated, yet has beautiful purity. It’s going to gain richness with a year in bottle as well.

The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Roussanne Pure was atypically tight and unyielding for this cuvée, with only modest peppery spice and an attractive orange-rind bitterness on the long finish. I have high hopes it will prove my rating conservative in time.
