Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Roussanne "Vieilles Vignes", Chateau de Beaucastel 2005

product at this time


A rich, powerful vintage for this rare white Chateauneuf. Excellent concentration with great potential. 100% Roussanne from vines at least 75-years-old. Vinified in 50% one-year-old casks and 50% stainless steel vats. One of the greatest vintages for this special wine.

"Powerful, with lush layers of mango, papaya and fig, but it's all kept bright and pure, with additional stone fruit, mineral and salted butter notes underneath. The superlong finish just lets the power and grace hang together beautifully. Drink now through 2020. 500 cases made." 95/100 Wine Spectator

"The 2005 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape blanc Vieilles Vignes is a knock-out wine in this vintage, 100% Roussanne from very old vines with 50% of it kept in tank and 50% barrel-fermented and the blend done prior to bottling. The wine has fabulous intensity, a big, sweet nose of exotic fruit, fig, marmalade, and honeysuckle, huge body, decent acidity, and an unctuous palate. It is a gorgeous wine to drink over 3-4 years or assume the risk that it is going to rebound in 10-12 years, which it most frequently does." 96/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
