93pointsClos de L'Oratoire des Papes 2016 White (Châteauneuf-du-Pape)

Cellar Selection

While this dry wine's crisp apple, white grapefruit and pear notes are understated on the nose and palate, its opulent, creamy mouthfeel is the showcase. Full bodied and honeyed yet not heavy, it shows hints of cashew, earth and saline complexities in development. Although drinking elegantly now, it should be even better from 2026 Anna Lee C. Iijima
