Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc

Château Rayas

Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Clairette Grenache Blanc 2005

That’s why these wines are so collectable. Unique style which is immediately recognisable. In essence more Burgundy than Chateauneuf. Greatness in a bottle. — 4 days ago

IX Réserve Improbable Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2001

Definitely at the end of life but there is still something to be said for this wine. Is it a Parker 94?...no. But it has a nice profile on the palate. Cherries and ripe fruit. It’s the nose that brings this wine down a notch and a little unbalanced on the back end with high acidity. Overall, it’s nice not great. — 12 days ago

La Bastide Saint-Dominique

Les Hespérides Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2013

Nose has smokey dry earth, dry lavender, old licorice, dried black cherry, ripe black currant, dried blackberry and (light) dried oak.

Palate has silky dried blackberry, ripe plum, black currant jam, (light) dark chocolate, dried blueberry and light tannins. Mouth coating texture. Future bottles should be 2023+

50% Grenache & 50% Mourvédre

Paired with a bottom round beef roast, slow cooked 8+ hours with autumn root vegetables and the au jus from the roast, thickened with a little of my own tomato paste, delicious.

Thanks. Not big CdP drinkers here, as most need time to settle. Household storage bottles are recent, so they're sleeping. Have enough older versions, but they are off-site, so hard to PnP, planning required.
Not a 'new' pic, been rocking it for several weeks. Until Julia and Team push out the Android update to address the first round of bugs on their new version, I can't update it. I'm going to work thru all of the fur-kids once I have the ability to change it again.

Domaine de la Presidente

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Grands Classiques Blanc 2015

Bright straw gold. Abundant nose of white flowers and dried yellow tropical fruit. Full-bodied palate echoes the nose adding white pepper, honeycomb, nuts, sweet corn, and a host of smaller layers. A firm backbone of acidity runs throughout from entry to finish. We all know CdP as a red wine, but its white counterpart should be on everyone’s list. The offering by Domaine de la Presidente (from the classic 2015 vintage) is an excellent entry point into this facet of Rhône wines. Well suited to pair with roasted chicken, pork loin, swordfish, game fowl, or root/green vegetable combinations. Drink now through 2025. — 20 days ago

Domaine de la Janasse

Chaupin Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2014

Blue fruit, touch of bacon, long finish. Good now but likely better in 5yrs. Tannins weren’t harsh but not fully integrated either. Pairs very well with lamb chops, cumin and fine herbs. — 10 days ago

2016 vintage. 30 Grenache Blanc 30 Clairette 30 Roussane 10 Bourboulenc. Blanched almond, beeswax, linden leaf, lemon pith, white grapefruit peel, lots of minerals. Acid definitely overrides any waxiness in texture. Good typicity. — 13 days ago

Vignobles Brunier ( Frédéric & Daniel Brunier )

Piedlong Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2013

Red raspberry and a little over note of vanilla. A very savory wine with heavy tobacco, dried herbs and black tea flavors. The finish is elegant and refined — 10 days ago
