Chateau de Beaucastel
Chateauneuf du Pape, Southern Rhone, France

100 pts Jeb Dunnuck
Brought up all in new demi-muids and barrels, the 100% Roussanne 2022 Châteauneuf Du Pape Roussanne Vielles Vignes offers a heavenly bouquet of ripe quince, acacia flowers, toasted almonds, citrus oil, and spice. Ful-bodied, deep, concentrated, and layered, with an unctuous style, this is pure Beaucastel magic. Reminding me of the 2009 (which is drinking brilliantly today), it deserves 2-4 years of bottle age and will absolutely blow you away over the following decade or more.

The 2022 Chateauneuf du Pape Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is another triumphant vintage for this bottling. Fermented and matured in a combination of new and second-use oak, it's ripe and honeyed, with waves of lush peach and melon fruit, yet it somehow never seems overdone. Full-bodied, ripe and round, it's expansive in the mouth yet never heavy, finishing long and luxurious, with subtle hints of wood spice, honey and citrus.

94-96 Vinous Media
Coming in at 14.5% alcohol, the 2022 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Roussanne Vieilles Vignes is shaping up to be a worthy successor to the delicious 2021 and 2020 vintages. Well-defined aromas of jasmine, honeysuckle, yellow apple, lemon and lime zest, ripe pear, quince, and verbena tea mingle with a tropical twist of melon. Full-bodied, concentrated and refined, it carries bright acidity contributing to a great sense of freshness. Only 7,000 bottles produced.  - By Nicolas Greinacher on April 2023
