Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc ‘La Bernardine’ 2012

92 points

The 2012 ‘La Bernardine’ Blanc is a fantastic showing, composed of 100% Grenache Blanc, it opens up with pretty aromas of honeysuckle, pear, sliced green apple, apricot, tropical fruit, almond and a fresh mineral character. It possesses a lovely creamy texture and balanced by a nice touch of acidity which resonates through the finish. This is showing well now with some air, but it would be best to allow this some additional bottle age. (Best 2015-2025)
