Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Roussanne Vieilles Vignes 2015

AOC Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Vallée du Rhône, France

Even better than the Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, the richer, more concentrated 2015 Châteauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes comes from a single parcel of vines located beside the Chateau that were planted in 1909. Full-bodied, rich, gorgeously concentrated and textured, with fabulous notes of orange blossom, buttered citrus, marmalade and honey, it will be up with the crème de la crème of the vintage. It’s worth noting that since 2009, the estate has changed the viticulture with regards to their whites, moving to slightly larger yields, with the goal of making a more elegant white that ages more predictably.
