Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge

Variety: Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Counoise, Cinsault
Region: Rhone Valley
Vintage: 2017

Château de Beaucastel has long been regarded as one of the greatest wines in France. It is notorious for its elegance, balance and ageing potential. Beaucastel has an exceptional terroir at the Northern limit of Châteauneuf du Pape, exposed to the Mistral wind. All thirteen varieties of the appellation have been organically grown since the sixties. TASTING NOTES The 2017 vintage has a deep color. 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 spicy fruit. The finish is long, held by elegant and coated tannins, harmonious and very persistent (fruit, spice, floral notes). A great vintage!

Awards:

97/100
"A tremendous effort, might Beaucastel's 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape
outshine even the 2016? I tasted a preliminary blend that Marc Perrin said
represented 80% of the wine, and it showed ridiculous floral and fresh
aromas of licorice, lavender and spice, all backed by tremendous fruit that
went beyond black and red and into hints of exotic stone fruit. The final
blend will likely contain more than 10% Counoise, the highest proportion
ever utilized at the estate. It's rich and concentrated yet silky and lithe, with
a fantastically long, elegant finish."  Wine Advocate

95/100
"The Grenache and Cinsault are fermented in cement, while the Syrah and
Mourvèdre are in foudre. Finely pixellated fruits of the forest aromas with a
full bodied but fresh and lively palate. The Mourvèdre element is strong,
bringing vibrancy and power. It’s firmly savoury, very dry and dramatic. A seriously structured Beaucastel for the long term.
