Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf Du Pape 2018
A true giant in the wine world is the Chareau de Beaucastel From as early on as 1687, the property of Pierre de Beaucastel has been an influential part of the history of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. For more than a century, the Perrin family have faithfully safegaured the reputation of this noble "Cru de Beaucastel by passing on their unique saviour-faire from father to son.The thirteen historical grape varieties are cultivated organically on this exceptional Terrior. For six generations, the wines made from these varities have been carefully blended to create Château de Beaucastel" with its unique character and ageing potential.
The pure and elegant nose suggests cherries, blackcurrants, spices, with floral notes, aromatic herbs (Bayleaf) and chocolate. The mouth is elegant, the tannins are ripe and fine, beautifully dense and concentrated structure, a seductive velvety texture enhanced with finely spiced fruit. The finish is long, held by elegant and coated tannins, harmonious and very persistent (fruit, spice, floral notes). A great vintage!
