Jeb Dunnuck über: Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Prestige

-- Jeb Dunnuck: Based on 60% Roussanne and the rest old Grenache and Clairette, brought up in two used demi-muids, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Prestige Blanc offers a rocking bouquet of caramelized peach, white flowers, flinty minerality, and spice. With an almost Burgundian-like reductive character, it's rich, medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, and layered on the palate. It ranks with the top 2-3 whites in the vintage. 95-97/100


Decanter über: Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Prestige

-- Decanter: This is outrageously flamboyant but hard not to like. There’s great concentration and it’s highly expressive already showing some complexity. It has a nutty macadamia note and a subtle flinty reduction with rich pear fruits that shoot through with oak spice, but it's the fruit that has the upper hand. It's very full-bodied but has enough pep and acidity to keep things upright and rolling. A cuvée that can be overly marked by malolactic fermentation, but not this year. Grown on sandy soils, 80% fermented in concrete, 20% in new barriques. It's matured for 14 months in old barriques, concrete and 20% new barriques. 95/100


Winespectator über: Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Prestige

-- Winespectator: A rich, alluring style, with a brioche note leading the way for creamed yellow apple, candied lemon peel, white ginger and quince notes. An accent of acacia honey lines the finish, where the brioche edge takes an encore. Showy and delicious. Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Clairette. 95/100


Weinwisser über: Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Prestige

-- Weinwisser: 70% Roussane, je 15% Clairette und Grenache blanc von weichem Sandstein, 20% neue Barriques. Intensiver Duft nach reifen Zitronen und Mandarinen, Note von Anis und Nuss, sehr elegante Holzwürze. Mineralischer Ansatz, dann viel Volumen, cremige Textur, komplexe Würze und ausgezeichnete Frische. 18,5/20


Parker über: Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Prestige

-- Parker: Predominantly Roussanne fermented and aged in one-year-old demi-muids, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvee Prestige offers up notes of gently toasted grain and grilled pineapple. Full-bodied, rich and round, it picks up hints of wood spice and citrus on the long finish. 92-94/100
