THE VERY RARE WHITE!

"The 2009 Vieux Telegraphe Chateauneuf du Pape blanc (40% Clairette, 30% Grenache Blanc, 15% Roussanne and 15% Bourboulenc) exhibits delicate floral notes interwoven with hints of pears, nectarines, red currants and crushed rocks. It is a fresh, full-bodied, delicious white to enjoy over the next several years.

Bistros, brasseries and consumers looking for an easygoing, quaffing wine should check out the Bruniers- Le Pigoulet, which Daniel Brunier calls a -retro- style of wine (meaning that in the age of power and generosity, this is a lighter, more elegant, fruity, earthy effort meant for immediate consumption)." (WA)

"Light, bright gold. Sexy aromas of orange, poached pear, jasmine and ginger. Juicy, fresh and concentrated, offering zesty citrus and orchard fruit flavors that become sweeter and spicier with air. Shows excellent focus on the long, energetic finish, which features notes of smoky minerals and nectarine." (IWC)
