Chateauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes Chateau Beaucastel 2017 (750ML)
97-99 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As always, the 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes comes from a three-hectare parcel planted in 1909. It's richer, creamier and longer than Beaucastel's regular white ChÃ¢teauneuf-du-Pape but also fresher and brinier. It looks even more impressive than the stunning 2016." 8/18
96 Points, Matt Walls, Decanter: [White Wine of the Vintage] "100+-year-old Roussanne here gives very small yields, and it's harvested around two weeks after the younger vines. This wine has notes of macadamia, mango, quince and rhubarb - a dizzying kaleidoscope of scents. It's very full-bodied indeed, almost too rich, but it pulls back from the brink with a gleaming mineral edge and adequate balancing acidity. Almost too much this year, it tastes nearly sweet on the mid-palate but finishes dry, very long and absurdly opulent. It's always an attention-grabbing wine, and some will love it all the more for its excess in 2017; some less. Drinking Window 2021-2040." 10/18
96-99 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com: "Last of the whites, huge notes of buttered citrus, exotic flowers, pineapple, honeysuckle, and almond notes all emerge from the 2017 ChÃ¢teauneuf-du-Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes, a rich, yet fresh, elegant, vibrant barrel sample that does everything right. You can't find a wine like this anywhere else in the world, and it's consistently one of the world's great white wines." 8/18
