Full bodied and rich, this is a big, toasty example of white Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Grilled mango notes lead the way, with vanilla and toast framing tropical and stone fruit on the long, oak-lined finish.
The Perrins farm about 17 acres of white varieties at Beaucastel, the majority of it roussanne. That grape accounts for about 80 percent of this wine, with bourboulenc, clairette, grenache blanc and picardan making up the rest. Vinified mostly in tank, with 30 percent in barrel, it strikes a head-turning balance between juicy, peachy fruit and breezy, floral delicacy. The wine grows in breadth as it takes on air, roussanne’s nutty warmth coming up alongside garrigue-like notes of earth and herbs, and yet it retains its initial energy, even after a couple days open on the counter. Decant it if you open it now; otherwise wait another six to eight years.
A gorgeously rendered hedonists’ delight, with creamed melon, peach, apricot and quince flavors that glide along, supported by subtle ginger, hazelnut and piecrust notes. The long, lush finish has fruit for days. Drink now through 2020.-J.M.
(aged for eight months in 70% stainless steel tanks and 30% in wooden barrels): Limpid yellow. Lively aromas of green apple, white peach and anise are complicated by hints of smoky minerals and pungent flowers that build with air. Juicy, seamless and taut on the palate, offering fresh pear, nectarine and lemon zest flavors that deepen on the back half. The mineral and anise notes repeat on a penetrating finish that lingers with outstanding tenacity.
A good, maybe not great vintage for the 2014 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc, it’s still outstanding and offers loads of orchard fruits, brioche, crushed rock and buttered citrus in a medium to full-bodied, elegant, pretty style. I’d give bottles a year in the cellar and drink them over the following decade, but a recent retrospective has convinced me you can age these for just about as long as you’d like.
