Wein Plus: Hervorragend (TOP 3 "Best of Chateauneuf du Pape")
"Fester und recht tiefer, etwas rauchiger, fast noch ein wenig reduktiver, leicht kräuteriger Duft mit hellen gelbfruchtigen Aromen, deutlich Fenchel, etwas Akazienblüte, Blätterteig, Spinat und mineralischen Nuancen. Reife, recht dichte, herb-saftige Frucht mit deutlich ätherischen Noten, wieder viel Fenchel und Akazie, etwas weißem Pfeffer und angedeuteter gelber Würze, recht lebendige Säure, leichter Griff, wärmender Alkohol, aber auch kühlende Elemente, gewisse Mineralik, herbe mandelig-nussige Töne, fast ein wenig Marzipan, auch deutlich Anis, ziemlich komplex, gute Tiefe, noch unentwickelt, sehr guter, fester Abgang. Muss reifen."
Decanter: 97 / 100 Punkte
"Citrusy and grapefruit-led thanks to the Bourboulenc. Touch of anise, touch of fennel, lovely acidity and freshness, with a gentle saline line. Generous but only just full-bodied, this shows liveliness and more depth than many white Châteauneufs this year. Long finish. No malolactic and no oak use. Drinking Window 2022 - 2042."
J. Livingstone-Learmonth: 4,5 / 6 Sterne (TOP 5 Leading 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape White)
"Yellow robe with a hint of pear skin; the nose is calmly making its way, gives a note of aniseed de Marseille, attractive peach, ripe white plum, roasted nuts. There are subtleties that add to its slightly mysterious appeal. The palate is elegant from the off, flows very well, has a delicious run of fruits, apricot, white plum, with a little snap of freshness on the close, a smoked note there. This is intricate and interesting, a little coy, one for The Thinkers to study and enjoy, has captured its place very well, is STGT Chateauneuf blanc. 2040-42"
J. Dunnuck: 96 / 100 Punkte
"From a great vintage for the whites (as well as the reds), the 2020 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc offers a classic, vibrant, medium-bodied style as well as lots of citrus and white grapefruit, a distinct, rocky, mineral character, good acidity, terrific overall balance, and a great finish. Give it a year and enjoy over the following two decades or more."
Wine Advocate: 95 / 100 Punkte
"Clos des Papes has white varieties in only three of its 24 vineyard parcels, but the resulting wine is a blend of all permitted varieties, in roughly equal proportions. The 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is outstanding, offering up scents of pineapple and tangerine, coupled with floral overtones. Full-bodied but clean and zesty, it's somehow plump and rich, but paradoxically light and refreshing. I enjoy these wines young, but proprietor Paul-Vincent Avril opened a still-delicious 2001 during this visit, so there is an argument to be made for aging this wine."
Wine Spectator: 96 / 100 Punkte
"Super fresh style, with fennel, lime, kiwi, white peach and honeysuckle notes all breezing through in unison and carried by lacy acidity through a well-detailed finish. This is approachable now for its brightness, but has the inner purity and sneaky length to age nicely as well. Drink now through 2032."

Zitat J. Livingstone-Learmonth: "Gold standard estate, joy to taste only one red, one white, so good blending is crucial. The yields are always very low – not much more than 20 hl/ha, which serves to concentrate the red wine, and there is an above average emphasis on the Mourvèdre, all planted in clay soils. The blend is now usually 55% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah, 5% various including white grapes, having been 65% Grenache, 20% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah, 5% various including white grapes into the early 2010s. The 2014 red was utterly charming, a real en finesse ****(*) beauty, while the 2015 is logically a bolder, more demanding ***** wine, requiring patience. The ***** 2016 red is deep and long, a vintage that will age extremely well. The whites drink well in their first couple of years, then back off, close down, and emerge as more complex, stimulating wines around seven years' old; they live well and deserve a top table accompaniment."
