Chateau de Beaucastel, Frankreich
(aged for eight months in 70% stainless steel tanks and 30% wooden barrels): Brilliant yellow. Powerful aromas of dried citrus and pit fruits, pear skin, melon and honey; smoky mineral and floral nuances build with air. Pliant, palate-staining pit fruit and orchard fruit flavors are lifted and sharpened by a suggestion of bitter citrus pith. Shows impressive depth as well as vivacity, finishing on a very persistent mineral note and with excellent cling.
