Domaine Grand Veneur La Fontaine Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2015
Domaine Grand Veneur La Fontaine Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2015
Rhone White Blends from Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Rhone, France
Yellow-gold color. The nose is rich in aromas of citrus fruit, tropical fruit, quince and honey, with a touch of vanilla. On the palate, the same aromas appear together with a fatness combining exotic fruit and vanilla. The wine is rich, generous and elegant, with extraordinary length. La Fontaine is often considerated to be one of the best Chateauneuf du Pape white, and it is by definition a superb gastronomy wine.
Best with fish dishes in sauce or foie gras, white meat and delicate cheeses.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A bigger, richer wine, the 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape La Fontaine Blanc is still aging in barrel and is marginally darker in color than the classic white. Buttered apples, brioche, honeycomb and hint of orange blossom emerge from this full-bodied, concentrated, seriously textured white that has moderate acidity and tons of fruit. It will be interesting to see how this comes together, but it has serious potential.
