A bigger, richer wine, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape La Fontaine Blanc is still aging in barrel and is marginally darker in color than the classic white. Buttered apples, brioche, honeycomb and hint of orange blossom emerge from this full-bodied, concentrated, seriously textured white that has moderate acidity and tons of fruit. It will be interesting to see how this comes together, but it has serious potential. (JD)
Limpid yellow-gold. Ripe citrus and pit fruits, honey, buttered toast and pungent flowers on the deeply perfumed nose, with a smoky mineral nuance building in the glass. Supple and broad on entry, offering sappy peach, pear nectar and Meyer lemon flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. The honey note reappears on an impressively long, penetrating finish that leaves a suggestion of buttered toast behind. I really like the combination of power and energy here. (JR)
