Fantastic Paso white Rhone blend of Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Picpoul Blanc. Extremely well balanced with dried apricot, almond and ginger. Somewhat dry with nice acidity, subtle oak and a long silky finish.

Definitely a standard bearer for New World Rhone-style whites. This wine shows tropical fruits, pickled ginger, green tea and five spice plus a great undertone of minerality I often miss in California whites.

Very attractive golden yellow color. Spring blossome floral aromas. Quite dry and refrehng in the mouth. Some kind of fruit flavor--kiwi or pineapple. Nice acid tartness gives me the refreshing thing. Bit of bitterness in the back. Good, lingering finish. US$32.99 at Wine Club in Santa Ana.

Fantastic Paso white Rhone blend of Roussanne, Grenache Blanc and Picpoul Blanc. Extremely well balanced with dried apricot, almond and ginger. Somewhat dry with nice acidity, subtle oak and a long silky finish. Very similar to the 2010 with the difference being that the '09 has a bit more citrus and lemon chiffon most likely due to have a bit more Picpoul Blanc (12% vs 5%).

Flinty nose with hints of petrol and crab apple. Oily texture and mouth coating. Golden apple flavors along with pear and floral notes. Nice. Tad of funk on the finish. Lingers nicely. 90 pts. 9/1/12 at winery

Roussanne, Grenache Blanc, Picpoul. Rose petal aromas and flavors with golden delicious apple at the core.Great concentration. Still very young and a tad acidic, this will flesh out beautifully.

The 2011 Esprit de Tablas Blanc is gorgeous and complete in this vintage. The cool bracing personality of the year is evident but at the same time the Esprit has a little more complexity than the single variety whites. In 2011 the Grenache Blanc is particularly expressive in this striking delicious white. The 2011 is 64% Roussanne 26% Grenache Blanc and 10% Picpoul Blanc. 90+ Antonio Galloni.

Easily my favorite of the 2011 whites and comprised of 64% Roussanne 26% Grenache Blanc and 10% Picpoul Blanc the 2011 Esprit Blanc de Tablas offers up a beautifully clear detailed and balanced profile with plenty of white peach orange rind buttered toast cream and hints of hazelnut all emerging from the glass. Medium-bodied silky and polished on the palate with excellent acidity and freshness this beauty can be consumed now or cellared for a decade. Drink now-2026. - Jeb Dunnuck Ro

Pale gold. Vibrant citrus fruit and floral scents are deepened by notes of licorice and pear skin. Spicy penetrating and pure offering intense spice-accented lemon and green apple flavors and a hint of chamomile. Dry and nervy on the persistent floral-driven finish. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The 2010 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc is bright, focused and beautifully articulated. The higher percentage of Grenache Blanc in this vintage gives the wine lovely lift, energy and focus.
