On sale because they came in with the wax tops all cracked.
A beauty, with macadamia nut, brioche, lemon curd and creamed Jonagold apple notes providing the fat, while pink grapefruit zest, verbena, chamomile and quinine details serve as a perfectly bracing counterpoint. Everything knits seamlessly through the very long, pure and creamy finish. Drink now through 2030. 133 cases made, 26 cases imported
Rated 97/100 Wine Spectator
Now that it's in the bottle, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvee Speciale continues to impress. Gentle toast and honey notes accent white peaches in a wine that really does resemble a top white Burgundy. Yes, it's a bit fuller-bodied and more flavorful than most, but then it finishes long and crisp. Wow!
