Blend: 40% Clairette, 30% Grenache Blanc, 15% Bourboulenc, 15% Roussanne

 

95 Points from Jeb Dunnuck

One of my favorite whites from the south of France is Daniel Brunier’s Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc and his 2019 is another stunning effort. Always a blend of Clairette, Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, and Bourboulenc brought up in foudre, this beauty boasts an exotic nose of honeyed peach, quince, crushed citrus, and salty minerality, all with a floral edge. Medium to full-bodied on the palate with flawless balance and beautifully integrated acidity, enjoy this concentrated white anytime over the coming 15-20 years.

 

Winemaker Notes

Télégrammeis a cuvéefrom younger vines with discretion and balance. Nothing is overdone. It is finely chiseled with a marvelous nervosity to it. It seems to have sprung as is from that great rocky plateau.
