Wine Critic Reviews for 2019 Chateau de Vaudieu Chateauneuf du Pape Clos Belvedere Blanc

The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Clos Du Belvédère Blanc checks in as 100% Grenache Blanc, all from a single parcel of vines around the estate. Brought up all in older barrels, it offers a Grand Cru white Burgundy-like bouquet of caramelized orchard fruits, white currants, wood smoke, scorched earth, and a beautiful sense of minerality. The purity is just about off the charts in this magical wine, which hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a beautiful spine of acidity, flawless balance, and a great finish. It’s unquestionably one of the greatest whites I’ve tasted from the estate and is quite possibly the wine of the vintage in 2019 whites.

All old-vine Grenache Blanc grown on galets roulés and red clay, the 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Clos du Belvedere boasts remarkable freshness and verve allied to ample weight and concentration. Scents of mixed citrus mark the nose, while the medium to full-bodied palate delivers scintillating notes of tangerine and lime, plus some gently herbal notes on the long, vibrant finish. It's clearly one of the best varietal Grenache Blancs to have passed this taster's lips, but I would suggest drinking it over the next several years to be sure to catch it in its youthful splendor.

Robert Parker Wine Advocate | 96 RP
This shows just how well Grenache Blanc can communicate and transmit minerality. Searing freshness and great mineral grind with a beautifully fresh citrus bite. Surely one of the best pure Grenache Blancs in the world. 2,600 bottles made. Pure Grenache Blanc grown on galets roulés in lieu-dit Vaudieu, fermented and aged in old barriques. Drinking Window 2020 - 2027.

Country France: Words fail us when trying to adequately portray France's place in the world of wine. It's downright impossible to imagine what wine would feel and taste like had it not been for France's many, many viticultural pioneers. Fine wine is the blood of France's vigorously beating heart, and it finds itself in many aspects of French culture. With a viticultural history that dates all the way back to the 6th century BC, France now enjoys its position as the most famous and reputable wine region on the planet. If you have a burning passion for masterfully crafted, mouth-watering, mind-expanding wines, then regular visits to France are probably already in your schedule, and for a good reason.

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.
Type of Wine Chateauneuf du Pape: You can expect Chateauneuf-du-Pape reds selection to wash over you with a combination of leather, game, tar, and delicious dried herbs, creating a spice mixture that commands respect from even the harshest non-believers. Chateauneuf-du-Pape whites are ever so refreshing and bold, frolicking in a field of floral notes and earthy minerals.
