|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc les Hauts de Barville is 80% Grenache Blanc, fermented and aged in stainless steel. Straightforward grapefruit and lime notes abound in this medium to full-bodied offering. It's crisp and clean, with riper hints of stone fruit to round out the mid-palate, while citrus keeps the finish fresh and long.
Wine EnthusiastConcentrated lemon and pineapple flavors are bright and sunny in this full-bodied yet delicately textured wine. Hints of nuts and spice lend nuance to the midpalate. Fresh acidity and a pleasant bite of bitter-lemon pith mark a moderately long finish. Drink now-2021.
