User Reviews for Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Chateau Beaucastel 94rr

Winemaker's Notes:

"A blend of 80% barrel fermented Roussanne, 15% Grenache blanc, and 5% other varieties, the 2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc would most likely be the white of the vintage if it wasn’t for its sibling. Boasting fantastic aromas of grilled peaches, apricot jam, subtle buttered toast, and wet stone like nuances on the nose, the wine is medium to full-bodied with a layered, rich texture, superb freshness, and a very long finish. Like the Vieilles Vignes, this should be consumed during its first 3-4 years, and then after a decade. It should age brilliantly for decades. ...94" RR 09/11 "The 2010 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape blanc is slightly more closed than its 2011 counterpart, as it has been in the bottle for nearly a year. Again 80% Roussanne and 20% Grenache blanc vinified in tank, the wine displays the typical tropical fruit notes intermixed with rose petals, crushed rock, spring flowers and a rather exotic, somewhat tropical character, but tangerines dominate the fruit spectrum...95" WA 10/12 "Juicy up front, with lively star fruit, peach and yellow apple fruit, this turns plush and languid, with alluring grilled hazelnut, sweetened butter and warm piecrust notes filling in on the finish. Sneakily long, thanks to the nicely integrated acidity. Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Picardan, Clairette and Bourboulenc...93" WS 02/12 "(80% roussanne and 20% grenache blanc, raised in stainless steel): Pale yellow. Fresh melon, pear and candied ginger aromas are deepened by a hint of honey. Tightly wound lemon curd and orchard fruit flavors open up with aeration, displaying deeper orchard fruit and melon character while maintaining vivacity. Leaves tangy mineral and lemon zest qualities behind on the long, focused finish...90" IWC 02/12
