Château Beauchêne also elaborates this typical and subtle white Châteauneuf. It shows expressive aromas of acacia flowers, roasted almonds and apricot. An especially long, fresh and nutty finish completes the tasting and brings is a further complexity. In short, a very nice bottle for lovers of Rhône white wines.

|What experts say|
88/100 “The 2014 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vignobles de la Serrière is a solid white that's made from close to equal parts Roussanne, Bourboulenc, Clairette and Grenache Blanc. Aged six months in stainless steel, it gives up classic notes of spiced peaches, quince and melon in a medium-bodied, juicy, fresh package.” (2014 vintage)
"Grande Réserve" is the first Côtes du Rhône of Château Beauchêne, already showing what they are capable of. Made of quite old vines for this appellation (30 to 50 years old!), it displays intense flavours of ripe red fruit, violet and blackcurrant with yummy spicy notes. Very, very well made Côtes du Rhône for this price!
This Côtes du Rhône from Château Beauchêne is a much more than the usual Côtes du Rhône, thanks to the 12 months spent in French oak barrels. The vineyard is located in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape area, and some of the Grenache used in the blend is 100 years old!

Palate is powerful, rich and spicy, typical from the appellation. Finish is long and complex as it should be. We have tasted so many Châteauneufs with lower quality and higher...
This cuvée is a pure concentrate of what amateurs love in Châteauneuf-du-Pape: complexity, balance, round tannins... Grapes come exclusively from vines of over 100 years old, which is pretty rare - it might be the first time we see it for a wine (well) under £50! Old vines provide an increased richness and amazing aromas of blackberry jam, plum, cedar,...
Here is another Côtes du Rhône that made quite an impression at our last tasting! Made of 100% Syrah, as its name suggests, it is a small confidential cuvée made by the Château only in certain vintages - essentially when the weather is not too hot. It boasts a beautiful typical "Syrah nose" of black & red berries, spices and cinnamon. Palate is very...
