Robert Parker "...offers up attractive notes of white peaches, Bosc pears, ripe melon and tangerine. It's full-bodied and generous on the mid-palate, but with a crisp, refreshing edge to the finish." (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "A delicious, spicy and round white with aromas of apple blossom, pear skins, cooked lemons, blanched almonds and cloves. Full-bodied with rich flavor concentration and a gently oily palate. Punchy finish. Very typical for a white from here. From organically grown grapes." (2020 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "Zesty peels of lemon and crisp yellow apples are at the forefront of this luminously fresh, fruit-focused dry white. An unoaked blend of Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Clairette and Roussanne, it's a full-bodied wine marked by tangs of salt and stony mineral tones on the finish. " (2020 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "Vitality and purity of fruit stand out in this brightly balanced blend of Grenache Blanc, Bourboulenc, Clairette and Roussanne. Vinified with no new-oak influences, it showcases fresh-faced pear and grapefruit flavors edged by a deeply mineral undertow. It's a refreshing, transparent style of Châteauneuf-du-Pape blanc that's particularly rewarding young. " (2019 vintage)

Jeff Leve, The Wine Cellar Insider "Ready to go on release, the wine is juicy fresh, sweet and floral, with a hint of peach that comes along with all the ripe citrus in the finish." (2019 vintage)

Robert Parker "...features scents of beeswax, tangerine and pineapple. Straightforward and citrusy, it's medium to full-bodied and round in the mouth, but the lively, engaging flavors fade a bit quickly on the finish." (2019 vintage)

Wine Enthusiast "Profoundly chalky, salty mineral tones lend vitality to this juicy Grenache Blanc-blend (supplemented by Clairette, Bourboulenc and Roussanne). Sourced from limestone soils and vinified without new oak, it showcases pert tangerine and pear flavors showered in minerality. " (2018 vintage)

The history of Château Maucoil began several centuries ago. Ancient documents state that its first occupants were Romans who set up a base for Caesar’s legions. Later, Joseph de La Pise, Lord of Maucoil and archivist of the House of Orange-Nassau, the Dutch royal family, inherited the estate and the castle which was built in 1624. From then on, winegrowing became an intrinsic part of the history of Château Maucoil.

The 45 hectares of vines in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation have been organic agriculture since 2011. Château Maucoil uses ancient methods such as furrowing, forming mounds and ploughing to tend the vineyard.

Originally from Bordeaux, the Lavau family who now own Château Maucoil, have been involved with winemaking for generations, and have had vineyards ranging from Bordeaux to Tunisia. In 1964 they were seduced by the richness and quality of the Provencal soil and settled down to make wine in the Rhone Valley.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape is a historic village between the towns of Orange and Avignon, in France's southern Rhône Valley. It is famous for powerful, full-bodied red wines made predominantly from the classic southern Rhône grape trio: Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. These three varieties are behind the vast majority of the appellation's red wines, although a total of eighteen are approved for use – a mix of red and white grape varieties.

Southern Rhone White Blend is a blanket term used to describe the various combinations of white wine grapes used in the southern half of the Rhone Valley. The principal varieties involved in a white wine from the southern Rhone are any combination of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, Viognier, Ugni Blanc, Clairette, Bourboulenc and Picpoul.
