Single Bottles (75cl) @ £52.50
      Go Back
Tasting Notes:
This is one white wine I really enjoy - it has good concentration and weight but enough acidity to remind me that it is in fact white. Good minerality too adds to its freshness.
Drinking Dates:
2014 to 2020+
Cépagement:
80% Roussanne, 15% Grenache Blanc, 5% Picardan/Clairette/Bourboulenc
Soil:
Molasse seabed of the Miocene period covered by diluvial alpine deposits (rolled pebbles).
Upbringing:
Handpicked in small cases, sorting of the grapes, pneumatic pressing, settling of the juice, fermentation (30% in oak barrels, 70% in tanks) for 8 months. Bottling after 8 months.
Critic Reviews:
The 2010 Beaucastel Blanc ... displays the tropical fruit notes intermixed with rose petals, crushed rock, spring flowers and a rather exotic, somewhat tropical character but tangerines dominate the fruit spectrum." 95/100 (Wine Advocate)

You must be aged 18 or over to purchase wine.
