87pointsAndré Brunel 2012 Les Cailloux White (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

At 80% Roussanne and 20% Grenache Blanc, this isn't a typical assemblage for Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Fermented and aged in concrete, it's reticent at this stage of its evolution, showing hints of paraffin and honey but remaining largely neutral. Unlike most white Châteauneufs, it would probably benefit from a few years of cellaring. Joe Czerwinski
