Excellent Rhone wine that is in a great place right now.  This bottle tasted much better and more mature than a bottle tasted two years ago.  That review can be found here:  https://www.intowine.com/reviews/2013-rotem-mounir-saouma-ch%C3%A2teaune...

Golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose is nice with a caramelized pear note, ginger, slight wax and baking spice.  Full bodied but a good backbone of acidity.  On the palate, there is a nice underlying minerality.  The pears come thru as well.  Long finish.  This is a delicious wine that will drink well on its own  but is even better with food.  Lighter foods with a bit of spice would be a good match.  Drink over the next seven to ten years.
