Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc White Rhone Blend 2016

$84.95

Just sensational, and one of the best examples of this cuvée out there, the 2016 Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc boasts phenomenal notes of orange blossom, salty minerality, caramelized peach, and spice. Rich, full-bodied, unctuous and yet always pure and elegant, it’s one of the finest wines coming from this hallowed appellation. Jeb Dunnuck

A fantastic display of a Rhône Blanc and an exceptional showing early on from the ‘16 vintage. Full bodied and rich with an underlying freshness, and elegance. White flowers, tropical fruits, spices and a touch of hazelnut with a lingering finish.

That’s a treat. A nice 180 from the 2005 we had a few weeks back. Perfect weight and palate covering texture. Nose was leaping.

The 2016 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc is a stunning wine from this famed estate. Needing more than an hour decant to fully develop, this starts off with beeswax, brandy soaked pear, nutmeg, and ripe banana that impress, as the intoxicating bouquet continues to bring you back to the glass. On the palate, the unctuous mouthfeel entices the senses. Silky smooth gliding through the palate, flavors reminiscent of baked pear, marzipan, banana bread and honeydew melon move through, leading to an exceeding long and satisfying finish. The salinity and light stony character of the wine further pushes this into the upper echelon of this prestigious region in the Rhone Valley. Enjoyable now, this wine will cellar well for decades. Drink 2019-2035- 96
