A blend of 68% Roussanne, 22% Grenache Blanc and 10% Picpoul Blanc.
The 2007 Esprit de Beaucastel Blanc is a powerful expression
of the 2007 vintage at Tablas Creek. It shows aromas of rose petals, candied lemon, honeycomb, white pepper, and sweet oak, rich Roussanne flavors of honey and sweet spice and long, dry, slightly tropical finish. It should drink well when young but will also reward time in bottle; we expect it to show beautifully for at least the next 8-10 years.
Pair with cooked shellfish (lobster, softshell crab, shrimp), roasted or grilled vegetables (eggplant,
asparagus, peppers), foods cooked with garlic and olive oil, rich fish dishes (i.e., salmon, swordfish) and Asian stir fry.
