    Winemaker's Notes:

    Beautiful golden yellow color. The nose is mineral with notes of white flowers, honey and marmalade. The mouth is round and rich in yellow fruits (peaches and apricots) followed by notes of salted butter caramel and a slightly salty finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A creamy texture belies the fresh, well-embedded acidity that lets the mango, papaya, macadamia nut, fresh butter and honeysuckle notes to play out on the long, beguiling finish. Gorgeous. Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Picardan, Bourboulenc and Clairette.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2008 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape blanc (80% Roussanne and 20% Grenache Blanc vinified in tank and wood) had its malolactic blocked so the wine’s stability and ageworthiness are more consistent than in the past. This beauty may be the finest dry white of the vintage. Aromas of nectarines, orange marmalade, rose petals, quince and buttered tropical fruits are offered in a medium to full-bodied format with lots of freshness and acidity. Consume it over the next 5-8 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Bright gold. Exotic aromas of passion fruit, papaya and honeysuckle, with a strong mineral undertone. Lush and creamy in texture, with sweet tropical and orchard fruit flavors braced by a tangy citrus note. Blends richness and energy with a deft hand and finishes with refreshing minerality and lingering florality.
