The 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape blanc (80% Roussanne and the rest Marsanne, Picpoul, and Bourboulenc) possesses classic notes of orange marmalade, honeysuckle, and rose petals, a full-bodied, unctuous texture, gorgeous purity and richness, and a stunningly long finish. It can compete with the finest full-throttle, dry whites of France as well as the world. It is difficult to find a better white Chateauneuf du Pape than Beaucastel. Much like their reds, their whites are made in a style that is atypical for the appellation. It is put through full malolactic, and one-third is barrel fermented, then blended with the two-thirds that is aged in tank. Extraordinarily rich and honeyed, it is ideal for drinking with intensely flavored culinary dishes - RP 94

Extremely big, round, full and bumptious. Stunningly caressing texture. Lovely honeyed completeness on the nose with a beginning, middle and end to what it delivers on the palate. Lovely, and very persistent. This will presumably have a later, mineral-dominated life from 2014 or 2015 onwards. - JR 18
