The bouquet pulls you right in with ripe red and black fruits alongside floral and citrus notes. The palate shows more complex hints of garrigue, licorice and spice playing against melon flavors as it cruises to a crisp, zesty finish. A beautiful blend of 70% Grenache with the rest split between Syrah, Mourvedre and Field blend, this will pair perfectly with slow-cooker stews all winter long.

Wine Spectator

Open-knit, with a pretty mix of steeped plum and lightly mulled raspberry notes infused with anise, singed sandalwood and garrigue accents. A charming wine. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2021 through 2033.

Wine Advocate

A blend of Clairette and Grenache Blanc, the 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Cuvée Tradition boasts floral and citrusy aromas. It's medium-bodied, with gentle pear and melon flavors and a crisp, zesty finish. Drink it over the next few years.
