WINE ADVOCATE 92 POINTS - "The 2012 Cotes du Roussillon Les Vignes de Bila-Haut – representing, as usual, tank-raised Grenache Blanc, Macabeu, and Read More...
Grenache Gris, some from chalky soils around Latour-de-France, but largely from granite heights in Lesquerde – beautifully illustrates not just the ability of Roussillon whites to convey vivacity, juiciness and invigoration at relatively low acidity, but also the ability of the best growers and sites to render gorgeous whites despite the challenges of the 2012 vintage. More than that, it offers incomprehensible value! Peach fuzz, lime zest, mint, fennel white pepper, salt, alkalinity, and an ineffable and uncanny sense of crystalline mineral impingement all keep this juicy cuvee invigorating as well as intriguing, and it manages to at once envelope the palate in luscious pineapple and peach fruit while at the same time broadcasting shimmering, vibratory interactivity into a finish notable not just for its vibrancy and complexity but also its sheer refreshment. (Unfortunately, the 2011 rendition was omitted from the line-up I tasted in the spring because not a bottle was to be found at the winery and I subsequently did not have chance to track-down one.)"

This fantastic French white from M. Chapoutier is a blend of Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Macabeu. A part of the grapes come from limestone and clay soils in the Agly Valley; the other part from granite soils at higher altitude (500m, later ripening sites). The grapes were hand-harvested, after pressing, the must is cold-settled. Vinification is performed in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. Ageing lasts a few months in order to keep all the freshness and enhance the minerality. 13% alcohol.

ROBERT PARKER 95 POINTS - "The 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape blanc is even better. Meriting the same rating as I gave it last year, it is a delicious, Read More...
beautifully textured, light gold-colored white revealing plenty of white peach, apricot, nectarine, and honeysuckle notes as well as a distinctive florality and minerality. More honeyed and fuller-bodied than its 2008 counterpart, it should drink beautifully for 7-8 years, then go into an oxidative state. It is somewhat of a gamble as to what will happen thereafter. Beaucastel’s limited production luxury cuvee first produced in 1986 is their 100% Roussanne Vieilles Vignes offering. Fifty percent is barrel-fermented in one-year-old barrels, but no new oak is utilized. "
Châteauneuf-du-Pape, between Orange and Avignon. The Chateau de Beaucastel white Vieilles Vignes (old vines) is 3 hectares / 7 acres in size. In this case the old vines are at least 75 years old. Roussanne 100%Hand-picked and collected in baskets, grapes sorted, pneumatic pressing and clarification of the must. Fermentation takes place 50% in barrels and 50% in stainless steel vats. Following malo-lactic fermentation, maturation for eight months, with 50% in oak barrels and 50% in vats, prior to bottling.Tasting notes Colour: pale yellow. Nose: acacia flowers, honey. Palate: very rich, honeyed.A wine of exceptional complexity and balance, it should approach its peak in five to six years.

Winemaker's notes : "The fresh 2011 summer made a long ripening season, which is the ideal situation to make a good Condrieu. The viognier hates the sun which has the tendency Read More...
to offer a heavy caricature of Condrieu. The real great Condrieu has to be made with nice golden bunches but shouldn’t excess 13,5° in alcohol. The equation is difficult to solve in a hot year like 2003. But in 2011, the slow ripening allowed to harvest at the exact optimum. Then the ageing on the lies brings the volume and the depth. As we don’t really know what the global warming will reserve in the future, let’s appreciate immediately this Condrieu «In Antiquis», the real Condrieu.. It goes very well with truffles or a Roquefort soup."

Hermitage appellation, above the famed lieu-dit for white Hermitage, Les Rocoules. This cuvee is very limited in availability so I’ll keep my notes brief. Aromas of white currants, pepper, quince and apricot marmalade are present in this full-bodied, gorgeously rich, pure, stunning white. Completely locked down at present, it should be forgotten for 8-10 years and drunk over the following two decades. It will unquestionably be a very long-lived white wine."

high glycerin and good acidity. This big, thick white Hermitage will not be as long lived as the 2009, but for drinking over the next two decades, it is impossible to resist. Jean-Louis and Gerard Chave opened a bottle of the 2003 Hermitage Blanc to give me an idea of how this vintage is aging. This monumental offering, which flirts with perfection, has virtually no acidity and is aging beautifully. The Chaves believe it is a repeat of what Gerard’s father made in 1929."
WINE SPECTATOR 95 POINTS - "Ripe and dense, but pure and beautifully rendered, with gorgeous mango, quince, fig and pear fruit flavors woven together and offset by quinine, paraffin and blanched almond notes. The finish just sings with fruit, minerality and a kiss of toast. Drink now through 2020. 1,244 cases made."
