The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape blanc (80% Roussanne and the rest Marsanne Picpoul and Bourboulenc) possesses classic notes of orange marmalade honeysuckle and rose petals a full-bodied unctuous texture gorgeous purity and richness and a stunningly long finish. It can compete with the finest full-throttle dry whites of France as well as the world. It is difficult to find a better white Chateauneuf du Pape than Beaucastel. Much like their reds their whites are made in a style that is atypical for the appellation. It is put through full malolactic and one-third is barrel fermented then blended with the two-thirds that is aged in tank. Extraordinarily rich and honeyed it is ideal for drinking with intensely flavored culinary dishes.

Densely layered showing peach cobbler graham heather chamomile almond and brioche flavors that glide along the creamy-textured palate with a long smoke-tinged finish. Still youthfully raw so drink the 2005 while you wait for this to come together. Best from 2010 through 2021. 1850 cases made.

Edge of near-decay but lovely too. Just fully evolved and this would beguile any drinker. Molten and lovely satin texture.

Pale yellow. Ripe peach and yellow plum on the nose, with sexy floral and honey character building with air. Taut citrus and orchard fruit flavors are refreshingly bitter, gaining depth on the close.

Taut citrus and orchard fruit flavors are refreshingly bitter, gaining depth on the close. Leaves a trail of stony white fruit flavors on the long, sappy finish. -- Josh Raynolds

The blended white from Beaucastel is every bit as enjoyable right now as the more expensive Vieilles Vignes bottling, offering more generous notes of honeyed oranges, a rich, weighty mouthfeel and a long, harmonious...
