    Winemaker's Notes:

    Beautiful golden color. The nose is shows a hint of oak, with an explosion of honey, peaches, exotic fruit and an exceptional richness and intensity. The mouth has a remarkable texture, thick but fresh. We find notes of white flowers and honeysuckle, lavender, honey and orange zest. The balance is perfect especially with the minerality, coming from the limestone, which gives this wine a great texture.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2008 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Roussanne Vieilles Vignes has opened considerably since I tasted it last year. Superb notes of orange marmalade, candle wax, rosewater, tropical fruit, spice and peachy/apricot jam emerge from this stunning white wine. It should drink nicely for 5-7 years.

    Creamy and lush, with lovely mango, peach, pineapple and macadamia nut notes that stay bright and defined throughout. Ripe and very stylish, with an alluring whiff of toasted almond on the finish. There's impressive mouthfeel for the vintage. Roussanne. Drink now through 2015. 500 cases made.

    Vivid gold. Deep, pungent bouquet melds floral honey, pear skin, anise and spicecake qualities. Weighty orchard and pit fruit flavors stain the palate and become sweeter on the back half, picking up a hint of poached pear. The extremely persistent finish leaves smoky mineral and floral notes behind. These vines are around 85 years old, according to Marc Perrin.
