Chateau Mont-Redon Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc 2018
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
Bright and fresh in feel, with light plantain, chamomile, white peach and green almond notes. Shows a good racy edge to the finish. Drink now through 2021. 3,300 cases made, 150 cases imported.
The 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc is one of the crisper, more lightly textured whites in the lineup. Based on 55% Grenache Blanc, 25% Clairette, and the rest Roussanne, Picpoul, and Bourboulenc, it has subtle notes of white flowers, citrus, and hints of minerality. Medium-bodied and nicely balanced, it comes up short on depth and richness but is unquestionably a beautiful, delicious drink. It should keep for 4-5 years.
