The 2018 White Château de Beaucastel Roussanne Vieilles Vignes shows a superb deep colour of a mimosa-yellow. Its buttered nose offers a wonderful bouquet of quince, dried apricot, Mirabelle plum, lime and roasted pineapple notes. Very elegant on the palate, it shows great richness and an opulent texture but perfectly balanced with plenty freshness, and powerful aromas of white flowers (acacia, honeysuckle), honey, almonds, citrus zest and truffle notes reinforced by delicate woody notes. The finish is of exceptional length and salinity.

The 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape Blanc Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is all Roussanne and comes from a three-hectare parcel of vines planted in 1901. It offers a heavenly bouquet of white currants, white flowers, honeysuckle, and toasted bread that opens up beautifully with time in the glass. Rich, full-bodied, powerful and concentrated, it stays perfectly balanced on the palate and has that rare sense of richness paired with freshness that's the hallmark of truly great wines.

The 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes combines luxurious richness-honeyed pineapple lushness-with clean, vibrant zest and brine notes to make for an interesting juxtaposition in its youth that demands time in the cellar to meld together into a harmonious whole. In one of the mysteries of the wine world, it will then stay on that plateau of decadent maturity for a decade or more.
