Château de Beaucastel, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Roussanne Vieilles Vignes 2016

RRP £100

Arguably the greatest white of the Southern Rhone, the wine seamlessly combines minerality, hedonistic flavor expression, density, and length to produce a joyful, but serious wine. From 1909 vines, the flavors suggest a meadow in full flower, fruit-laden peach orchards, orange spray, and ginger.
