Rotem & Mounir Saouma Chateauneuf-du-Pape 'Magis' Blanc, Rhone 2015, France
PRESS: Jeb Dunnuck - 98 points. "Based largely on Grenache Blanc, the 2015 Châteauneuf-Du-Pape Blanc Magis is a thrilling effort that has top Corton-like level of reduction and minerality to go with layers of white flowers, stone fruits, crushed rocks, and bright citrus. Deep, pure, medium to full-bodied, and textured, with thrilling tension and focus, it’s a magical white from this estate that will stand up with the best out there. It will be better with short-term cellaring and will keep for 2-3 decades."
