CDP Cuvee Prestige Blanc, Domaine de la Janasse 2015

Tasting Notes

And a candidate for the white of the vintage, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Cuvee Prestige Blanc is 80% old vine Roussanne and 20% Grenache Blanc (there’s splash of other varieties in there) and was bottled the day before this tasting, although it wasn’t showing worse for it. It has thrilling amounts of buttered citrus, pineapple, stone fruits and brioche, with its oak component perfectly integrated and pushed into the background. Full-bodied, layered and incredibly textured, yet always fresh and pure, hats off to the Sabon family for this sensational white! It will be better this time next year, and like the base cuvée, can be cellared for decades.
