Chateau de Beaucastel Roussanne Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2017
Wine Region: Rhone-Valley - France
Tasting notes: It's a rich, full-bodied example of white Chateauneuf-du-Pape, with honeyed notes of pineapple, peach and citrus all playing leading roles, while a touch of anise appears on the lingering finish.
About the winery: Chateau Beaucastel has a long and rich history in the Rhone Valley dating to the mid-16th century when a certain "Noble Pierre de Beaucastel" purchased plots of vines near the town of Courthezon. Since 1909 the Chateau has been owned and expertly managed by the Perrin family. Three-quarters of Chateau Beaucastel's 100 hectares of vines are located in the Chateauneuf-du-Pape and are a blend of predominately Grenache, Syrah, Counoise and Cinsault. If one word could describe the red wines of Beaucastel it must be "pure": pure because they are the exact expression of the land and the grapes from which they come.
