Maison Benedetti Châteauneuf-du-pape

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

Vintage: 2005
Type: Châteauneuf-du-pape
Country: France – Rhône

One of the only white wine reviews you’ll see on this site, mainly because I’m not really a fan. I will say that this white is superb, rich and oaky with an excellent taste.

BTW, not many people know that you can get a white Châteauneuf-du-pape. You can find it, but the production is very small.
