Red Rhone Blend
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. Also, unlike most... More »

Issue Issue 136

($95) Ruby-red. Blackberry and cassis on the nose, with a complex set of earth, herb and floral qualities adding complexity. Deep and sweet, with bitter cherry and candied licorice flavors and youthfully firm tannins but no hardness. Turns more lively on the finish, picking up a spicy red berry character and leaving a long, pungent herbal trail behind. This needs time. "It's the opposite of a bimbo wine," Perrin offered.

Fabulous aromas of sweet fruit, beginning of leather and then really meaty on the palate, seasoned with pepper and spice. Silky texture. Mouthwatering and elegant. Still so much more to come. (JH)

The 2005 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape is a wine that probably needs 7-10 years of bottle age. Possibly the most backward and closed Beaucastel made since the 1995, the wine has very high tannins, seems totally closed aromatically, but in the mouth is a weighty wine exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color and tight aromatics consisting of new saddle leather, porcini, meat juices, licorice, tar, and black fruits. The wine is full-bodied, powerful, very tannic, and structured in a dramatically masculine, ageworthy style. This is one for the younger generation or those with considerable patience.

Really dense and locked up now, this is packed with dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit shrouded by layers of tar, hot stone, bittersweet licorice and espresso. The long, dense finish has a great tug of iron buried within it.

Ripe blackberry and licorice were readily apparent. My friend, with whom I was drinking, noticed a subtle hint of tobacco. I regret that I didn't have a decanter available at the time. However, I am delighted I have one more bottle, which I will not touch for another 5-6 years.

Clear, deep dark ruby. Clean. A medium nose of cooked cherries, plums, sweet spices, herbs, vanilla and a slight hint of smoke and leather. Some mint as well. Dry, high tannins (but quite fine and silky). Medium acidity, high intensity. More leathery notes on the palate. Big. Long sweet finish. Would be nicer if there is a bit more acidity. Outstanding quality. High priced. Should wait for another 5 years before drinking.

Beautiful dark ruby purple color on this full bodied powerful Beaucastel. Aromas of licorice, dark fruits and some meaty juices. Initially the tannins are strong but blend in nicely after a while, meat juices, licorice, tar, and black fruits. This one will be one for the ages - I can't wait to have the next one five years from 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.
