Ripe pear, honey and still a touch of some floral notes. This is an interesting Rhone blend with some age and a gold hue. Still drinking very nicely but seems to be on the latter part of its drinking curve.

Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Picpoul. Beautiful pale gold color. Honeyed apple and honeydew aromas and flavors with beeswax touches and mineral notes. Perfectly balanced between fruit and acidity.

Another strong vintage for this wine. This is one of Tablas' most consistent wines. Rousanne, Grenache Blanc, and Picpoul Blanc. Strongly flavored by the Rousanne. Bright, mineral tones with lemon, tropical fruit, and honey. A wonderful wine.

Wine Advocate ReviewRated 92-95Beautiful notes of orange blossoms, lemon oil, assorted tropical fruits, white currants, rose water, and spice emerge from the 2006 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc (65% Roussanne, 35% Grenache Blanc, and 5% Picpoul). Full-bodied, rich, intense, dry, and stony in its minerality, this superb dry white should age nicely for 4-5 years or longer.Wine Tasting NotesThe Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc is a vibrant expression of the terroir of Tablas Creek. It shows aromas of honeysuckle, mint, lemon peel and spice, with rich Roussanne flavors of honey, rose petals and pear, a distinctive saline minerality from the limestone soils, balanced acidity and great length. It should drink well when young but will also reward time in bottle; we expect it to show beautifully for at least the next 8-10 years.

The 2005 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc is a vibrant expression of the terroir of Tablas Creek. It shows aromas of honeysuckle, mint, lemon peel and spice, with rich Roussanne flavors of honey, rose petals, pear, petrol and white flowers, excellent breadth, cleansing acidity and great length. It should drink well when young but will also reward time in bottle; we expect it to show beautifully for at least the next 5-7 years.70% Roussanne25% Grenache Blanc5% Picpoul BlancFOOD PAIRINGSCooked shellfish (lobster, softshell crab, shrimp)Roasted or grilled vegetables (eggplant, asparagus, peppers)Foods cooked with garlic and olive oilRich fish dishes (i.e., salmon, swordfish)Asian stir fry

Winemaker's Notes:

2006 Tablas Creek Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc Beautiful notes of orange blossoms, lemon oil, assorted tropical fruits, white currants, rose water, and spice emerge from the 2006 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc. Full-bodied, rich, intense, dry, and stony in its minerality, this superb dry white should age nicely for 4-5 years or longer. Wine Advocate # 172 Aug 2007(65% roussanne, 30% grenache blanc and 5% picpoul). Vibrant quince and green apple on the nose, with energetic citrus zest and minerals adding energy. Sharply focused lime and apple flavors are impressively balanced and clean, with slow-building honey and tangerine adding depth. Finishes with impressively pure, vibrant citrus flavors and excellent length. A very fresh blend. 92 points International Wine Cellar This is a California wine
