Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

Wine Description

(2005 Vintage) Really dense and locked up now this is packed with dark fig currant and blackberry fruit shrouded by layers of tar hot stone bittersweet licorice and espresso. The long dense finish has a great tug of iron buried within it. Best from 2011 through 2030. 96 Points Wine Spectator
