Producer Notes

Chateau Beaucastel, run by the Perrin brothers, is regarded as one of the best estates of Chateauneuf-du-Pape. At 131 hectares of vineyards, it is also one of the largest estates in the region. It is atypical of the appellation in its production techniques. It is one of three estates to produce and vinify all 13 grapes permitted under the regulations of Chateauneuf-du-Pape.

deep red colour; needed a lot of airing; sweet and spicey on the palate with notes of black fruits and cinnamon; drinking well now

Forward nose of cedar & dried fruits with beautiful balance on the pallet. Lingering after taste with sufficient fruit to age well for the near future.

Ready to go. Fill starting to shoulder down, however. Still lots of fruit but not entirely integrated.

Consistent notes with significant improvement in bottle typical of Beaucastle. Beautiful mahogany-brick red color; less of the typical Beaucastel barnyard bret than in other vintages; profound smoky/gamey nose w/leather tobacco & exotic spices; similar flavors on the palate; soft integrated tannins; rich, complex and well-balanced; a masculine style wine but with no hard edges; amazingly long, rich & complex finish. A great Beaucastle that is fully mature now and will continue to drink well for several more years.

Cow Dung? Barnyard, earthy funk, but still some rasberry buried way down deep. I loved it, a few thought the barnyard was too much

Light garnet, a little bricking at the rim. This has an amazingly complex and aromatic nose. Definite notes of smoked meat, coffee, chinese five spice, tomato ketchup and polished wood accompany sweet underlying blackberry fruit. Medium bodied with good acidity and smooth integrated tannins. Beautiful balance in the mouth. Rich, defined flavours of leather, blackcurrant, coffee, dark chocolate and bacon fat. Evolves on the palate and lingers in the throat for minutes. Fabulous.

The color showed its age but the nose and palate were still very primary. Not nearly the barnyard flavor/nose that I recall from the 89. Not bad, but certainly not the wine I was hoping. In a dumb phase?

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
