Tasting Notes


ABV:
14 %

Notes

From one parcel planted in 1920 this offers stunning old vine complexity and minerality to go with the creamy texture and crisp greengage fruit character. Lush and seamlessly held together by a fine acidity, this is very classy indeed

Notes
Yellow-gold. Intensely floral aromas of jasmine, beeswax and coconut-accented orange and pear. Lush and weighty, with powerful pear, tangerine and nougat flavors accompanied by exotic oak notes. This reminds me of high-end white Bordeaux. Tightens up on the back, where bright mineral and citrus pith notes give shape and grip to the intensely sweet fruit. The finish of this wine is endless.

Château de Beaucastel

Château de Beaucastel

Château de Beaucastel is situated on the east side of Châteauneuf near Courthézon. The Domaine is owned by François and Jean-Pierre Perrin and consists of 70 hectares made up of 30% Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre, with the rest being planted with the appellation’s ten other permitted grape varieties. In every way it sets itself apart from its local rivals; from an unusually low proportion of Grenache for today’s average Châteauneuf-du-Pape producer, to the unique thermo-vinification process involving a short intense burst of heat during fermentation in order to aid extraction of colour and flavour from the grapes while killing harmful bacteria. These elements, and the Perrin’s unwaivering determination for perfection, result in one of the Rhône’s most complex and long lived wines.
