Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Wine Description

(2001 Vintage) "This inky/ruby colured cuvee offers a classic Beaucastel bouquet of new saddle leather, cigar smoke, roasted herbs, black truffles, underbrush, and blackberry as well as cheery fruit. It is a superb, earthy expression of this Mouvedre-dominated cuvee. Full-bodied and powerful, it will undoubtedly close down over the next several years... Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025..." 96/100 pts. (Robert Parker - Wine Advocate - Feb 2004)
