Château de Beaucastel

Pale yellow color. Nose of acacia flowers, honey. Palate is very rich and smooth.

Wine Advocate

The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is an amazingly open-knit, full-bodied, honeyed white boasting tons of orange marmalade, quince, white currant and creme brulee liqueur-like notes, stunning purity and richness, and a fabulous full-bodied, unctuously textured mouthfeel. Its richness is off the charts, and the wine offers a completely contrasting style with the more delineated, zesty 2010. I would opt for drinking the 2009 over the next 4-5 years.

Score: 96. —Robert Parker, October 2011.

Wine Spectator

A bold, broad style, with gorgeous green fig, pear and melon flavors laced with heather honey and glazed peach notes on the rich finish. Extra persimmon, hazelnut and brioche notes fill in the background, giving added dramatic effect. Drink now through 2018. 2,000 cases made.

Score: 93. —James Molesworth, July 31, 2011.
