2020 Brotte 'Les Hauts de Barville' Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Rhone, France
$37.99 USD $39.99 USD
Straw yellow with golden highlights. On the nose, white flowers and white-fleshed stone fruits evolving into notes of buttery hazelnuts. Honey hints develop over ageing. Mouth-filling and plump with honey and fresh ripe fruits (peach, white currant). Great length with an elegant citrus finish.
Rated 93 Points Wine Spectator
Very fresh, with a long, pure stream of verbena, white peach, lemon pith, yellow apple and chamomile notes, all supported by a deftly inlaid spine of shortbread that runs from start to finish. Grenache Blanc, Clairette, Roussanne and Bourboulenc. Drink now through 2026.

Honeysuckle, apricot, papaya and lemon-curd aromas. It’s full-bodied with smooth, creamy layers of ripe fruit, yet it stays fresh. Nice tropical fruit at the finish. And hot stone. Drink now.
