Chateau Beaucastel - Chateauneuf-du-Pape Blanc 2010-12Round & Rich
Beautiful golden yellow colour.
The nose has a lot of minerality with notes of white flowers, honey and marmalade.
The mouth is round and rich in yellow fruits (peaches and apricots) followed by notes of salted butter caramel and a slightly salty finish.
The production of white wine at Beaucastel is limited as they only have 7 hectares of white vines planted. The main variety is Roussanne, representing 80% of the blend.
