Even richer and more concentrated than the 2011, the blockbuster-styled 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is almost overflowing with notes of marmalade, ripe pineapple, white flowers and assorted honeyed nuances. A big, ripe and layered white, it stays remarkably fresh and lively on the palate, although I suspect there's little real acidity. Beautiful on all counts, it's so good now, I don't see a need to hold off, but it will be very long-lived. - Jeb Dunnuck

80% roussanne 15% grenache blanc 5% blend of picardin clairette and bourboulenc. Approaching yellow-gold in color the forward aromas of tropical fruits bring Vieux Telegraphe's example to mind. Exotic aromas and flavors... 80% roussanne 15% grenache blanc 5% blend of picardin clairette and bourboulenc. Approaching yellow-gold in color the forward aromas of tropical fruits bring Vieux Telegraphe's example to mind. Exotic aromas and flavors of mango banana pineapple and syrupy fruit cocktail dominate the palate which is round and fat with low acidity on the finish. A little more acidity would make for a more lively wine so drink this over the next 3-5 years.
