Rotem & Mounir Saouma, Chateauneuf-du-Pape Magis 2016
"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." Jeb Dunnuck

For the lover of fine white Burgundies, you need to add this to your cellar. Decant and enjoy now (that's what I said....decant) or put some in your cellar and forget about it for the next 10+ years.
