The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape Vieilles Vignes de Clairette Blanc offers terrific notes of lemon peel, orange blossom, honey and hints of caramelized peaches to go with a full, fleshy, textured style on the palate. Possessing moderate acidity and a big finish, there’s only 600 magnums produced.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 92/100. Light, bright yellow. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh orange, yellow apple and white flowers, and an intense chalky nuance adds lift and focus. Dry, penetrating and pure, offering nervy orange pith and pear skin flavors given spine by juicy acidity. Shows superb energy and thrust on the finish, which hangs on with outstanding, mineral-driven tenacity. Available in magnum.
