Maison Brotte Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rhone 2014

Decanting this young white paid off in spades! Hitting the decanter, this wine immediately began to open up. Lychee nut, orange blossom and orange zest. Just a whole lot going on here. A very pleasing, but not existential CdP blanc. Worthwhile to revisit in a few years. 13.5% alc. With assorted cheeses, ham and crusty bread. 04.13.18. Recommended.
