Winemaker's Notes

A blend of equal parts Grenache, Clairette and Rousanne from the prestigious Clos Saint-Jean. Clos Saint-Jean is considered by critics, sommeliers, and consumers alike to be among the top properties of the Southern Rhone. The raw material for this wine is what is deemed at many domaines suitable for their top end cuvees, yet at Clos Saint-Jean this is their classic bottling.

Critical Acclaim

"bright and bouncy, with crunchy acidity carrying pipping apple, Cavaillon melon, white peach and green almond notes. Pure on the finish, this turns steadily creamier with air. Drink now through 2015. "
92 Points

"Clos Saint-Jean's white wines continue to improve with each vintage. Their finest to date is the 2011 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc, a 500-case blend of equal parts Roussanne, Clairette, Grenache Blanc and Bourboulenc that is aged half in barrel and half in tank. It reveals plenty of honeysuckle, tangerine, white currant and quince notes in its full-bodied personality."
