Château de Beaucastel Vieilles Vignes Châteauneuf-du-Pape Roussanne 2010

$115

The 2010 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes has off-the-charts richness. Keep in mind, the elevage here is slightly different, as it is aged in one-year-old barrels with a touch of new oak, but like its sibling, no longer undergoes malolactic fermentation. A profound wine with hints of nectarine, mango, subtle smoke, rose petals, this sumptuous, full-throttle wine has unmistakable minerality, a skyscraper-like texture and an amazingly laser-like finish with incredible amounts of glycerin and fruit. Drink it over the next 4-5 years... Robert Parker

Lush, opulent, rounded. Tropical fruit, fragrant; thick and viscous. Definitely coats the mouth. Stellar example of white CDP

2010. Light aniseed and dry cuminy spice. Peaches, white flowers, honey and hay. Lovely nose. Good weight and concentration, with intense hot stones, peaches, dried flowers, hay. Medium acidity & high alc, but really nice.
