Château de Beaucastel Blanc Roussanne Vieilles Vignes 2003

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

The 2003 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes has a full-bodied, unctuous palate, thick, juicy flavors of exotic fruits, huge body, low acidity, and terrific ripeness. It is best drunk over the next 2-3 years.

Very ripe, with lush papaya, peach cobbler, melon and butter flavors that are creamy and powerful through the finish. Exotic hints of ginger, graham and almond, too. Has a track record for drinking well young, and then reemerging after a long dumb period. Drink now through 2007. 500 cases made.
