In the same ballpark as the 2017 (as well as the same blend), the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc offers lots of white peach, crushed citrus, and floral notes as well as a great, salty minerality. Medium to full-bodied, balanced, and textured, this is another terrific white from the Maret family.

A blend of 40% each Grenache Blanc and Roussanne with 20% Clairette, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is an easy-drinking, lush wine. Twenty percent was fermented and matured in new oak, but it's hardly noticeable, as the wine gives off scents of pineapple and guava, then adds zesty-briny notes on the finish.
Sumptuous bouquet of white flowers, citruses, lavender, and honey, as well as, flint stone. The mouth is round and creamy yet with a nice tension and a long finish.
