Châteauneuf-du-Pape

VertdeVin - - Wine Reviews -

The nose is fruity, min­eral, racy and of­fers fi­nesse as well as fresh­ness. It re­veals notes of ripe lemon / quince and crushed ap­ple com­bined with slight notes of tan­ger­ine, com­poted white fruits, white flow­ers (el­der­berry…), racy min­er­al­ity as well as a hint of vanilla and an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of oak. The palate is fruity, well-bal­anced, nicely gour­mand, unc­tu­ous and of­fers an acid frame, fi­nesse, suavity, ten­sion, a nice def­i­ni­tion, fresh­ness, depth­ness and ele­gance. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of crushed pear, ap­ple and candied quince / ap­ple as­so­ci­ated with slight touches of vanilla as well as an im­per­cep­ti­ble hint of aca­cia honey. Good length.
