Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2007
The white wines of Château de Beaucastel are amongst the finest expressions of Roussanne grapes grown in a warm climate. The two cuvees have a lot in common but show different personalities: the standard bottling, made from 80% Roussanne and 20% Grenache Blanc, whose vines are between 10 and 40 years old, and a small quantity of the “Vieilles Vignes” cuvee, produced entirely from Roussanne vines of at least 65 years of age. Both are examples of the intense aromatic possibilities shown by the Roussanne grape when certain principles are respected. First, yields must be kept extremely low; then great care must be taken in the vineyard to ensure healthy, strong vines, producing ripe grapes in perfect condition; finally, depending on the vintage, the grapes must be harvested at the right moment and vinified correctly. As with any great wine, the story of Château de Beaucastel Blanc begins in the vineyard: in this case a seven hectare site close to the Château itself. This wine offers a nose of acacia flowers and honey which precedes a palate which is very rich and smooth.
