"A big step up, the 2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Pure Roussanne offers terrific citrus, white fruits, and sautéed apple nuances as well as a fresh, very clean, crisp style on the palate. It’s moderately concentrated, yet has beautiful purity. It’s going to gain richness with a year in bottle as well."

"The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Roussanne Pure was atypically tight and unyielding for this cuvée, with only modest peppery spice and an attractive orange-rind bitterness on the long finish. I have high hopes it will prove my rating conservative in time."
"A bit of flinty character as well as ripe stone fruit and some exotic citrus character like starfruit. Full body and long persistence. Combines personality and drinkability in a very appealing way. 17+/20 points. (RH)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
A Châteauneuf du Pape white unconventional since it is derived from a single grape variety, Roussane, vinified and aged several months on the lees according to Burgundy methods. Coming from two distinct terroirs of the appellation, our white Châteauneuf du Pape PURE ROUSSANE is the marriage of sandy soils exposed north and clay soils mixed with rolled pebbles facing south.
