Tasting notes: Nearly black in color. The nose is very delicate and powerful at the same time, with red fruit, blackcurrants, blackberries, spices, thyme, and lavender. The bouquet is very elegant, rich, and round, with figs, cherries, blackcurrants, and stewed fruit, all with great acidity. The tannins are present but very delicate.
About the Winery: Chateau de Beaucastel has long been regarded as one of the greatest wines in France. It is notorious for its elegance, balance, and aging potential. Beaucastel has an exceptional terroir at the Northern limit of Chateauneuf du Pape, exposed to the Mistral wind. All thirteen varieties of the appellation have been organically grown since the sixties.
