Editorial Reviews for Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc
Great intensity on the nose with a flush of floral notes followed by plums. dry cow patty, brilliant notes of bloody meat. Soft and richly mouthfilling in the mouth with a layered richness and unusual intensity of flavor centered around dried strawberry, with a subtle shading of dark chocolate and earthy spice. The only fault is the relative simplicity on the palate but this is a true crowd pleaser.
Tight and clean, smoky, mineral, floral, oleander, balanced, reticent, finesse, elegant tannins, lithe mouth feel, hinting at black cherry. This requires air. A hint of chocolate, lovely length. Smith Brothers black cherry cough drops. This lacks the explosiveness of previous bottles, perhaps it’s closed or the wine is past peak. Having had so many great experiences with this wine over the past few years, this is a let down. 90pts
The nose was reticent yet refined with perfectly ripe blackberry, spice, and hints of wood and stems. It opened over time with sweeter fruit and hints of undergrowth. On the palate, it was beautifully balanced and smooth yet holding back at first. As it opened in the glass, flavors of finessed black fruits and medicinal herbal tea notes sweetened up the palate. The finish showed long spices and hints of remaining structure.
From .375- nose was very primary- all lightly roasted raspberries- the palate started off extremely disjointed and way out of balance, but after about an hour in the glass, everything came together into a real heavyweight CdP- almost painful to drink now, but incredible potential.
THIS IS A WINE TO SAVOR... This wine takes you on its journey, with each sip revealing new complexities. Take an hour to drink one glass (OK, a 200ml glass). The wealth of flavors this wine gives as it opens is to be enjoyed, not hurried.
Amazing nose initially with the promise of much more to come. Rich, leathery and earthy. However, its not one to open and leave for a few hours as it drops off quickly. Lovely, but pop the cork and go or it.
really fortunate to have tried this particular wine a few times. i love more each time.
