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. Importer: Vineyard Brands Birmingham AL; tel. (205) 980-8802

Lush and weighty with powerful pear tangerine and nougat flavors accompanied by exotic oak notes. This reminds me of high-end white Bordeaux. Tightens up on the back where bright mineral and citrus pith notes give shape and grip to the intensely sweet fruit. The finish of this wine is endless.

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... 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. –JM
