2014 Chateau Beacstel CDP Blanc
In the glass this wine has a bright, clear yellow colour, with undertones of white gold. The nose shows a buttered character, brioche, and a mix of white flower notes, peach and apricot. A wonderful wine that opens with a sharp and lively attack, but not too much. The palate is balanced and complex, with a good persistence supported by a slight salinity. The production of white wine at Beaucastel is limited as we only have 7 hectares of white vines planted. The main variety is Roussanne, representing 80% of the blend.
