The flagship white is the 2008 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc a blend of 65% Roussanne 30% Grenache blanc and a rarity of 5% Picpoul. This is really great stuff in 2008.

This is really great stuff in 2008. The wine displays plenty of honeyed citrus spring flowers white peach apricot quince and loads of wet rocks giving a steely definition to its opulent full-bodied yet fresh flavors. This is a tour de force in dry white and Rhone Ranger blends. It's impossible to know how long it will last but I would drink it sooner rather than later.

Aromas of Braziian limes and lemon with flowers. Lemon crud. Rich. Full-bodied with wonderful dense and agile palate of dried apples mango and figs. Love the finish. Caramel honey and lemons. Rousanne really comes out... Aromas of Braziian limes and lemon with flowers. Lemon crud. Rich. Full-bodied with wonderful dense and agile palate of dried apples mango and figs. Love the finish.

($40; 68% roussanne 22% grenache blanc and 10% picpoul) Light bright gold. Pungently floral aromas of lime lemongrass and green apple with notes of dusty minerals and honey. Deep citrus flavors are firmed by gentle chalk... ($40; 68% roussanne 22% grenache blanc and 10% picpoul) Light bright gold. Pungently floral aromas of lime lemongrass and green apple with notes of dusty minerals and honey. Deep citrus flavors are firmed by gentle chalk and white pepper qualities and show a strong tangerine note. Tangy and refreshing on the finish leaving behind sweet citrus and mineral notes. This wine is really lively for a southern Rhone white blend.
