2005 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc, Château de Beaucastel

Southern Rhône

$85.00 per Bottle


1 Bottle




"This shows a nice firm, stony underpinning that allows exotic fig, kiwi and mango notes to sit seamlessly on a bright, minerally spine. The long, well-structured finish shows a green plum note. Drink now through 2020. 1,750 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Light gold. Full-blown tropical and citrus fruits on the nose, with a sexy white flower quality. Impressively fresh and poised, with mineral notes bracing ripe pineapple and orange flavors. A sweet suggestion of honey lingers on the juicy, round, very long finish." Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

"The 2005 Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape blanc, a blend of 80% Roussanne and 20% white Grenache fermented 80% in tank and 20% in barrel, has exuberant notes of honeysuckle, rose water, and hazelnuts. It is medium to full-bodied, rich, and certainly one of the finest of the white Châteauneuf du Papes." Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #169

"Bottled in September, later than usual. Cough-medicinal hints. Rich and smooth and creamy. Should be great eventually." JancisRobinson.com
