C. Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Roussanne Vieilles Vignes 2009, France
PRESS: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 100 points. "The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes (Roussanne) is a staggering wine of extraordinary complexity and richness. Aromas of rose petals, exotic fruits such as mango and nectarine intermixed with peach marmalade, honeysuckle and crushed pineapple emerge from this full-bodied white along with good acidity and lavish amounts of fruit and glycerin. It offers a nearly out of body wine tasting experience."

A beautiful golden yellow colour.
The nose is mineral with notes of white flowers, honey and marmalade.
The mouth is round and rich in yellow fruits (peaches and apricots) followed by notes of salted caramel butter and a slightly salty finish.
