The Winery

Château de Beaucastel

Château de Beaucastel has been in the hands of the Perrin family for several generations, and continues to be in the top echelon of Southern Rhône producers. For each vintage, they strive to preserve the tradition of producing naturally expressive wines of grandeur. Beaucastel is one of the largest domains in the region with 300 acres of vineyards, planted to all 13 permitted grape varieties of the southern Rhône. Beaucastel is known to produce some of the most ageable wines in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation.

Tasting Notes

WA98
As this was bottled only a week before I tasted it, I suspect this rating will prove to be conservative once a few months have passed. The 2015 Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage a Jacques Perrin is another prodigious version of this wine. How many wines in this world can be so huge yet so lacking the feeling of weight? There`s plenty of layered spice but also a core of raspberries; rich tannins, yet no real astringency; and a long finish without any apparent heat. Wow!
