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.

Drink Dates 2012

Brought bottle out of refrigerated storage (58*) and stood it up on cunter for a couple of hours. No sediment on sides and not too much in bottom of bottle, but the final glass did show some fine sedimen. The top of the cork was completely clean with no mold, and the bottom of the cork was about 15 mm above the wine inside the bottle. The cork came out in one piece and the cork was not saturated, and the sides of the cork were completely clean. The color is ruby-garnet with some lightening at the edge, but no significant amber. The wine has thick legs that coated the interior of the glass. The wine has a bouquet of red and black fruits -- cherries, Rasberries, blackberries. There no barnyard funk or any leather notes. A light body for a Beaucastel, in my opinion. The wine is acidic on the finish with still a lot of taninns, which I think overwhelm the fruit (but it is a Beauastel!) Drink now

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.
