Wine Spectactor (WS)

Offers a high-pitched feel, with honeysuckle, chamomile and talc notes quickly followed by melon rind, yellow apple and star fruit flavors. The finish shows more depth, featuring hints of brioche and macadamia nut that should develop with time, revealing a buried salted butter accent. Best from 2015 through 2025. 1,665 cases made. –JM

Wine Advocate (WA)

Always one of the leading whites in the appellation, the 2012 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc checks in as a blend of 80% Roussanne (from 40-year-old vines) and the balance Grenache Blanc, Picardan, Clairette and Bourboulenc. Aged 70% in tank and 30% in barrels, it displays terrific notes of white currants, dried pineapple, flowers and salty minerality that flow to a medium to full-bodied, gorgeously textured and rich palate feel. Despite the richness level, it stays lively and fresh, and should drink nicely for 3-4 years. It will, of course, keep longer, but these are notoriously finicky in how they age. Drink now-2018+.
