"The classic 2022 Ch'teauneuf Du Pape Blanc from this estate is fabulous and has a great mix of richness and freshness. Stone fruits, citrus blossom, crushed stone, and minty nuances all define the aromatics, and it's medium-bodied, with a supple, elegant mouthfeel and outstanding length. It's one to buy a case of for drinking over the coming 3-4 years. This cuv,e is a blend 40% Clairette, 30% Roussanne, with the balance a mix of just about every other permitted variety, and it was aged in 12% new barrels with the balance in stainless steel."

"An assemblage of 40% Clairette Blanche, 30% Roussanne, 14% Bourboulenc, 10% Grenache Blanc and small amounts of Clairette Rose, Grenache Gris, Picardan and Picpoul Blanc, Mont Olivet's 2022 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc offers up mouthwatering aromas of orange marmalade and lime zest. Medium to full-bodied in the mouth, it's silky and richly textural, with a gently honeyed finish. Drink it on the young side."
