Tasting note from from 13.08.2021, Copyright Marian Henß


Sparkling straw yellow, green reflections


A nose clearly marked by yellow fruits stands in the glass. Mirabelle, apricot and peach. Totally stony and contrary to the hot climate, it presents itself cool and refined. The fruit also has a tendency towards the exotic. Papaya, mango and pineapple are in the second row. Clos des Papes Blanc is delicately reminiscent of orange blossom, kumquats and tangerine skin. Discreetly, lavender, rosemary and pine buzz in the background. It also lives from very fine, smoky traits. It seems sublime, but not terrifying. As if it had a lot to tell.


On the palate, it presents itself close-meshed and dense. With a lot of mouthfeel and grip, it provides a gustatory challenge. The 2020 Châteauneuf du Pape Blanc from Clos de Papes is not even remotely fat or broad. It comes across as aristocratic, considered and versatile. A subtle spiciness nestles pleasantly on the palate. The stoniness and minerality are again prominent. In the finish, it is led by a fine saffron aroma. The Mediterranean herbs are always recognisable in the background, but by no means push themselves to the fore.

Food recommendations from Marian Henß

  • Roasted monkfish with sautéed artichoke bottoms and paprika reduction
  • Fillet of veal cooked in a herb coating with mushroom cream and fried Schupfnudeln (potato noodles)
  • Celeriac cooked in salt dough with basil pesto and roasted walnuts
