Wine Name: Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc ‘Cuvee Reserve’
Producer: Domaine du Pegau
Publication: Wine Advocate
A blend of 60% Clairette, 20% Grenache Blanc and 10% each Bourboulenc and Roussanne, the 2018 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvée Réservée is in a wonderful drinking window right now, blending honeyed-peach richness with citrusy freshness. Medium to full-bodied, it's round upfront, but gradually narrows to gain focus and length on the finish, adding elegant hints of fennel along the way.
