The 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Vieilles Vignes (Roussanne) is a staggering wine of extraordinary complexity and richness. Aromas of rose petals, exotic fruits such as mango and nectarine intermixed with peach marmalade, honeysuckle and crushed pineapple emerge from this full-bodied white along with good acidity and lavish amounts of fruit and glycerin. It offers a nearly out of body wine tasting experience.

The Beaucastel 2009 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is off-the-charts in terms of richness. Aged in one-year-old barrels (50%) and new oak (50%), with no malolactic, it boasts stunning aromas and flavors of marmalade, peaches, apricots, nectarines, mangoes, rose petals, creme brulee and buttered citrus. This full-bodied, gorgeously rich, voluptuously textured white has enough acidity to carry it for a decade or more.
