Wine tasting note: 1995 Clos de Pontifes Chateauneuf Blanc

1995 Clos de Pontifes Chateauneuf Blanc

7th Oct 1998 GBP15 Rhone Table White

Bright gold.
Honeyed, floral nose - warm with a trace of nuts. Slightly oxidised.
Full bodied with ripe marmalade flavours, crisp acids and a warm, alcoholic finish. Dry with oak coming through on the mid-palate.
A unique style of wine - very good now on its own, but I don't think it will develop.
