2012 Château Sixtine Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc

SKU #1141066 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Moving to the estate wines, the 2012 Cuvee Sixtine Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is a knockout blend of 100% Roussanne that spent 6 months in barrel. Layered, rich and classy, with golden fruits, pineapple, sweet spice and toast, it flows onto the palate with medium-bodied richness, beautiful purity and a clean, focused finish. Always a rich white, it balances everything perfectly and will be versatile on the dinner table. Drink it over the coming couple of years. Drink now-2016.  (10/2013)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Bright plantain, Cavaillon melon and salted butter aromas and flavors are followed by a long, creamy finish that shows a hint of macadamia nut. A flattering style.  (10/2013)

Other White Wines



- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.


- Legendary wine-producing region in southeast France. Stereotypically speaking, Rhone wines are high in alcohol, and the majority produced is red. The northern Rhone is best known for outstanding 100% Syrah wines from areas such as Cote Rotie and Hermitage, as well as for fabulous white wines from Condrieu (where Viognier is king). In the southern Rhone, look for spicy, full-bodied wines that are blends of Grenache, Syrah, and other varietals coming from appellations such as Chateauneuf du Pape, Gigondas, or Rasteau. Wines labeled as Cote du Rhone or Cotes du Rhone Village (a cut above generic Cotes du Rhone) are frequently found here in the US because they often represent some of the best values on the market.
