Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc "Le Miocène" 2016 - Domaine Grand Veneur

A round and complex white Châteauneuf-du-Pape coming from a dedicated parcel. Subtle aromas of white flowers and yellow fruit, a long finish with a touch of honey. Much more complex than a simple Côtes du Rhône, this is the ultimate white for amateurs who want to discover a wine that can be rich and fresh at the same time.

What experts say    
Decanter.jpg

90/100 "Their Châteauneuf du Pape Le Miocène Blanc is their classic cuvée and is 60% Clairette and 40% Roussanne, all from the Cabrières lieu-dit, and I believe raised mostly in stainless steel. It's fresh, crisp and classy, with medium-bodied notes of spiced apples, citrus blossom and honeysuckle. Drink this elegant, beautifully pure white over the coming 2-3 years." (previous vintage)

16/20 "60% Clairette, 40% Roussanne. Sour quince-like aroma but there’s a slight hint of blossom too. Dry, gently textured, rather slight. Bitter-almond finish but it’s certainly fresh. (JH)" (previous vintage)

91/100 "Stylish, with a caressing brioche hint that gently underscores the core of creamed yellow apple, white peach and almond flavors. The long finish lets the fruit play out, featuring a stony echo for spine. Drink now." (previous vintage)

Made from a specific parcel with ideal soils for white grapes, this wine is a pure expression of the Viognier, a highly aromatic grape grown in the Rhône valley. Very classy with subtle aromas of white peach, pear and flowers, keeping enough minerality to provide a good balance. Try it on a goat cheese, you will love it.
