Chateau Mont-Redon Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc 2019
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
A fresh, racy version, with a mix of lemon pith, verbena, quinine, honeysuckle and white peach notes blitzing through. Very fresh through the finish. Drink now for its brightness or let it broaden a little with cellaring. Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Roussanne, Bourboulenc and Picpoul. Drink now through 2026. 3,000 cases made, 150 cases imported.
Starting with the 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc, which is a blend of 50% Grenache Blanc, 20% Clairette, 15% Roussanne, and 10% Picpoul, the 2019 has a light gold hue as well as beautiful notes of orange blossom, salted citrus, honeysuckle, and white flowers followed by plenty of salty minerality on the palate. Medium-bodied, elegant, and vibrant, it's not a blockbuster, but it's going to age gracefully for 10-15 years, if not longer.
