Tasting Notes

Based largely on Grenache Blanc, the 2015 Châteauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc Magis is a thrilling effort that has top Corton-like level of reduction and minerality to go with layers of white flowers, stone fruits, crushed rocks, and bright citrus. Deep, pure, medium to full-bodied, and textured, with thrilling tension and focus, it’s a magical white from this estate that will stand up with the best out there. It will be better with short-term cellaring and will keep for 2-3 decades.

Light brilliant yellow. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes mineral-accented pear nectar, orange gelato, iodine and mineral scents, along with a deeper suggestion of honey. Impressively energetic, sharply focused citrus and orchard fruit and floral flavors stain the palate while showing zero fat. A sexy floral nuance emerges steadily as the wine opens up, along with hints of toasted brioche and green almond. Wonderfully concentrated yet nervy; the ridiculously long, focused finish features lingering floral and mineral qualities. This is one of the most impressive bottles of Rhône white wine that I can recall, from the north or the south, and I'd have no qualms about setting it up alongside the best from Burgundy.
