Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Roussanne Vieilles Vignes 2019
Chateau de Beaucastel from Chateauneuf-du-Pape in the Southern Rhone produces some of the region's most famous wines with the Grand Cuvee Hommage a Jacques Perrin being particularly sought.
"One of my favorite whites in the world is the old vine Roussanne cuvée from Beaucastel, which comes from a single 3-hectare parcel just outside the domaine, in the northern, cooler part of Châteauneuf du Pape. The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is another thrilling example of Roussanne and offers a vivid gold hue as well as gorgeous notes of white currants, honeysuckle, white flowers, crushed stone, and hints of gunpowder." - 99pts - Jeb Dunnuck
