2013 Roussanne Vieilles Vignes, Château de Beaucastel

Another astounding white wine from the Perrin family, and fully deserving of its 97 points from the Wine Advocate’s Jeb Dunnock. An incredible balance of rich, toasty oak and linear freshness on the nose, with unmistakable minerality and intensity, the palate has an all-consuming flavour profile and shape that makes this one of the world’s most interesting and rewarding white wines.
97 points, Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate #215, Oct 2014

2013 Roussanne Vieilles Vignes, Château de Beaucastel
Famille Perrin

Dating back to 1549, Château de Beaucastel may be the oldest estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, now managed by four members of the Perrin family. One of the first estates in the region to utilise organic viticulture, they are known for their use of all 13 permitted grape varieties, particularly Mourvèdre, resulting in powerful, generous wines. As well as red and white Châteauneuf, the estate produces a Vieilles Vignes Blanc from Roussanne and the extremely rare cuvée, Hommage à Jacques Perrin.
