Tasting Notes

The 2014 Châteauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc Magis is primarily Grenache Blanc mixed with 10% each of Clairette and Roussanne, and 5% Bourboulenc. Fermented and aged two years in French oak, it was never racked, pumped, fined or filtered. It offers a gorgeous bouquet of white peach, honeysuckle, brioche and wet stone-like nuances. Deep, rich and layered, with beautiful purity and length, it’s another sensational white that’s going to evolve for at least a decade, and I suspect quite a bit longer.

(fermented and aged in used demi-muids for two years): Brilliant straw-yellow. Potent citrus pith and orchard fruit aromas stain the palate and show outstanding clarity and a smoky mineral overtone. Broad, sappy and focused on the palate, offering expansive orange, pear nectar and honeysuckle flavors and a refreshingly bitter suggestion of quinine. In a weighty but shockingly taut, nervy style, with noteworthy closing thrust and lingering minerality.
