Wine Critic Reviews:

The base 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc is another killer effort. Made from 40% Roussanne and 30% each of Grenache Blanc and Clairette, it offers copious amounts of sautéed peach, tangerine and orange blossom to go with beautiful fruit and texture on the palate. Possessing vibrant acidity and a clean, crisp finish, I’d drink it over the coming 3-4 years, but you can keep this cuvée for decades

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 93 RP
A fresh, pure style, with a lovely chamomile note leading the way, followed by verbena and honeysuckle accents before the yellow apple and Cavaillon melon fruit strides in. The creamy finish pulls everything together. Drink now through 2018.

Wine Spectator | 93 WS
Light bright yellow. Fresh, mineral-laced orchard and pit fruit and floral aromas show excellent clarity, and honey and vanilla elements add complexity. Silky, concentrated and sharply focused on the palate, featuring emphatic mineral lift to the concentrated pear and peach nectar and nougat flavors. A toasty lees note comes up slowly with air and carries through the very long, incisive finish, which leaves behind mineral and pear skin notes. The interplay of richness and vivacity that this wine displays is quite impressive.

Region Rhone: While the Northern Rhone produces only about 5% of all wine coming out of the Rhone Valley, the quality of these bottles is not to be underestimated. The terroir in this region is heavenly for growing Syrah, Viognier, Marsanne or Rousanne - the only permitted grapes in the AOC. Picture this - the Rhone flows through the valley like an azure thread piercing the landscape, a reflection of the dreamy skies hovering above the vineyards, ready to produce rainfall at a moment's notice. The rocky soil of the steep, almost surreal hillsides provides a bountiful feast for the grapevine roots. The flavors and texture of Northern Rhone wines tell you everything you need to know as soon as your lips touch the elixir, like a whisper in the vigorous valley winds As per the Southern Rhone wine, it is like taking a plunge into a whirlpool of juicy flavor. Every sip explodes forward like a crashing tsunami, bathing your tastebuds in delicious aromas of prune, chocolate, grass, and black fruit. The wines are so compelling that it can be hard to drink them casually at a social event without getting lost in their intricate textures and emotional depths. Let's set sail together, and drink deep from these luxurious bottles with our friends and loved ones.

Varietal Proprietary Blend: There's a level of mystery and intrigue when it comes to drinking a wine for which you're not fully informed about, and if that sounds like a thrilling idea to you, then you're probably already interested in proprietary blends. While the concept doesn't have a legal definition, it is used to describe blends whose components aren't disclosed by the producer. In many cases, the wine tends to be a Bordeaux-inspired blend, but this isn't always the case.
