    Winemaker's Notes:

    Blend: 65% Roussanne, 30% Grenache Blanc, 5% Picpoul Blanc

    The 2004 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc is a vibrant expression of the terroir of Tablas Creek, with aromas of honeysuckle, pear, spice and mineral, flavors of caramel apple, lemon peel and honey, excellent breadth and a long clean finish. It will drink well when young but should also show beautifully for at least the next 5-7 years.

    Food pairings: Cooked shellfish (lobster, softshell crab, shrimp); roasted or grilled vegetables (eggplant, asparagus, peppers); foods cooked with garlic and olive oil; rich fish dishes (salmon, swordfish); Asian stir fry

    Critical Acclaim:

    A luxury proprietary blend of Rhone Ranger varietals, the 2004 Esprit de Beaucastel blanc is composed of 65% Roussanne, 30% Grenache, and 5% Picpoul. Tipping the scales at nearly 15% alcohol, it is a honeyed marmalade, rose water, and tropical fruit-scented white offering superb definition, richness, and headiness. This stunning effort will drink beautifully with grilled fish or shellfish dishes.
