Tasting notes

June 2010: tasted just after a roussanne from the Chateau de Beaucastel. This white which is made from roussanne and marsanne in the style of great Rhone wines completed the pair. It really is worth laying down so the outline of everything you taste on the finish is intensified. 2011 to 2017 Bettane & Desseauve 2009.

Food and wine pairings

Truffle risotto.

" Impressive density. This is thick, with big legs and a nutty nose. Marzipan and marmalade on the palate. Low acidity. Needs drinking. " [+]
