Prefert Chateauneuf du Pape BLANCs

Top quality, small production!
Worth grabbing some!

2014 Domaine Saint Prefert Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvee Speciale Vieille Clairettes....$179.99 / 1.5 liter (Magnum)
A ripe, honeyed style, with a warm brioche frame around creamed melon, pear and persimmon flavors that have an unctuous feel, easily extending through a long, grapefruit oil-infused finish, showing cut and drive. Hard to resist now, but this will hold for a bit in the cellar. Drink now through 2024. 133 cases made.
Rated 96/100 Wine Spectator
(only bottled in magnums)

2015 Domaine Saint Prefert Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc...$49.99
The classic 2015 Ch√Ęteauneuf du Pape Blanc (60% Clairette and 40% Roussanne) is a total head turner that has fabulous aromatics (citrus, white flowers, cold steel and spiced apples), medium to full-bodied richness, bright acidity and a salty minerality that comes through on the finish.It’s a killer white to buy by the case.
