Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 91-93

The luscious, flowery, honeyed 2006 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc (65% Roussanne, 30% Grenache Blanc, and 5% Picpoul) reveals a lovely floral-scented nose with hints of bees wax, honeysuckle, rose petals, marmalade, and tropical fruits. Medium to full-bodied with terrific acidity as well as a heady finish, it will provide pleasure over the next 2-3 years.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Well-balanced, intense yet elegant. Full-bodied, showing vivid blueberry and wild berry flavors, with hints of nutmeg, cedar and coconut. Ends with a long, complex finish that shows a pleasant loamy, earthy quality. Mourvedre, Grenache, Syrah and Counoise.

Deep purple-red in color, with a slightly briary nose of blackberries, black currants, candied fruit, and Asian spices, this elegant Rhone-style blend of Mourvedre, Grenache, Syrah, and Counoise needs a good decant to open up, but when it does, its black fruit and spice strike a pleasing chord with dark meat poultry dishes.

Great old world style wine with a gamey dark nose. Slightly acidic overall good wine.
