Rotem Mounir Saouma Chateauneuf-du-Pape blanc Magis 2014

Mystifying how this wine ehibits both suppleness and tension, and a piercing minerality that is unique among Chateauneuf whites we have experienced.

Rotem Mounir Saouma Chateauneuf-du-Pape blanc Magis 2014

Another unsurprising but jawdropping discovery when encountering the Saouma wines: Magis, Mounir’s white Chateauneuf from the heavily limestone Pierredon vineyard in Bedarrides.  It makes sense that a producer of great white Burgundy would quickly become enchanted by the possibilities here. Only 3% of Chateauneuf is white, and virtually all of it is bottled after 6 months. Mounir’s chateauneuf is aged 18-24 months and has already been compared to some of the great white Burgundy crus for its depth and minerality.

"Light brilliant yellow. A highly perfumed bouquet evokes mineral-accented pear nectar, orange gelato, iodine and mineral scents, along with a deeper suggestion of honey. Impressively energetic, sharply focused citrus and orchard fruit and floral flavors stain the palate while showing zero fat. A sexy floral nuance emerges steadily as the wine opens up, along with hints of toasted brioche and green almond. Wonderfully concentrated yet nervy; the ridiculously long, focused finish features lingering floral and mineral qualities. This is one of the most impressive bottles of Rhône white wine that I can recall, from the north or the south, and I'd have no qualms about setting it up alongside the best from Burgundy."

"A beauty, with singed macadamia nut, brioche and hazelnut hints leading the way for a mix of creamed Jonagold apple, white peach, persimmon and Cavaillon melon flavors. A buried spine of chamomile and jasmine keeps everything focused while extending through the very long and beguiling finish. Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Clairette and Roussanne. Drink now through 2025.
