Wine Advocate

96 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 500-case production of this wine comes from a three-hectare parcel of Roussanne planted in 1909. The 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes takes the quality of Beaucastel's traditional white and raises it another level. Caramelized pineapple sounds sweet and cloying, but it isn't when it's backed by amazing texture, citrus zest and a briny sensation on the never-ending finish. As this was the last wine of my visit to the estate, I found it especially hard to spit out." 10/17

Vinous Media

96 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "Limpid gold. An impressively complex, mineral-tinged bouquet evokes ripe citrus and orchard fruits, toasted brioche, white flowers and honey, and hints of fennel and honey emerge with air. Shows superb delineation and powerful thrust on the palate, offering ripe orange, pear, melon, sweet butter and anise flavors that tighten up steadily on the back half. Powerful yet graceful in character, displaying excellent delineation and spicy cut on an extremely long, floral-accented finish that leaves a sappy pear nectar note behind. Cellar this one with complete confidence." 10/18


98 Points, Matt Walls, Decanter: "100 year old Roussanne vines giving very small yields and harvested two weeks after the younger vines. It's deeply vinous, with aromas of quince, pineapple and apricot. Very full-bodied, it is languorous and opulent in texture. It glides across the palate, down the throat and lingers on. The oak is used well, adding rather than detracting. A very powerful, regal wine." 10/17
