Looking at Paul-Vincent’s Chateauneufs, and a rich, voluptuous example of this cuvee that possesses great acidity, the 2012 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc offers up ripe stone fruits, white currants, honeysuckle and licorice... Looking at Paul-Vincent’s Chateauneufs, and a rich, voluptuous example of this cuvee that possesses great acidity, the 2012 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc offers up ripe stone fruits, white currants, honeysuckle and licorice to go with a full-bodied, rich and powerful profile on the palate that somehow stays beautifully fresh and focused. It’s a gorgeous wine that can be consumed in its fresh and vibrant youth, or cellared for a decade or two. It’s a knockout white that should not be missed! Drink now-2032. - Jeb Dunnuck

Wine Spectator, November 2013

Shows the latent depth... A bracing, pure style, with a tightly coiled core of talc, honeysuckle, kaffir lime and white peach notes. Sleek and racy, with a stony accent inlaid on the finish, adding extra detail and range. Shows the latent depth and the purity to develop steadily in the cellar. Drink now through 2021. 900 cases made. –JM

Expressive citrus pith, pear, floral and smoky mineral scents are complemented by a deeper suggestion of toasty lees. Densely packed but vibrant Meyer lemon, pear nectar and candied ginger flavors are sharpened by a suggestion of dusty minerals that builds in the glass. Finishes juicy and sharply focused, offering resonating honeysuckle and mineral notes and superb persistence. - Josh Raynolds
