Clos des Papes blanc 2018 | AOC Châteauneuf-du-Pape
The Clos des Papes blanc 2018 is comparable to 2016 and 2015. It is quite rich and powerful but has good acidity which gives it a great freshness. The balance is there, it is not dominated by alcohol. The yield is equivalent to the red. It is also a great year to keep. It is difficult to give a tasting date because we have very different and very marked stages on the white. If you like fruity (pear, citrus, aniseed) or floral wines, you should drink them within two years knowing that these aromas will give way to a mineral character (oil and bitter almond) which reminds of certain wines from other regions such as Alsace and the Loire. The dried fruit and honeyed sides characterize the next stage. This may seem like an evolution but it is not, since we will go back to mineral aromas and keep a great freshness. After 15 years, the evolution is not so important anymore, the wine will open on aromas of roasted almonds. So you will understand that it is difficult to know the peak of our wines, all the more so as everything will depend on the dish with which you taste it. We can therefore conclude that the whites have the same ageing potential as the reds.
