Wine Description

(From 2012 Vintage) While not the most structured vintage of Beaucastel, this is a full-bodied, creamy textured rendering of Ch√Ęteauneuf-du-Pape. Finely detailed notes of plum, thyme and leather mark the nose, while the flavors are ripe almost to the point of jamminess. Joe Czerwinski, Wine Enthusiast, Note : 93/100, 2016-05-01 Opaque ruby. Deep-pitched black and blue fruit liqueur aromas are complemented by suggestions of licorice and cola. Broad, sweet and fleshy, offering concentrated blackberry and boysenberry flavors enlivened by juicy acidity and a peppery spice nuance. Tightens up slowly on the youthfully tannic, focused finish, which clings with resonating spiciness and outstanding tenacity.

Winemaker's Notes

Ch√Ęteau de Beaucastel has long been regarded as one of the greatest wines in France. It is notorious for its elegance, balance and ageing potential.
