94 Points - The Wine Advocate

"Moving to the reds, the 2018 Châteauneuf Du Pape showed nicely with a deep ruby/purple color as well as classic Beaucastel aromas and flavors of darker currents, blueberries, smoked meats, black licorice and roasted herbs. With medium to full-bodied richness, a pure, clean, elegant texture, sweet tannins, and a great finish, this seamless, elegant Beaucastel will be approachable in its youth, yet still have 20+ years of prime drinking."

    Château De Beaucastel

    Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer

    One of the largest and most famous estates in Châteauneuf du Pape, Château de Beaucastel has 200 hectares of vineyards and has been owned by the Perrin family since 1909. With a history dating back to 1549, the property is today in the hands of the fifth generation, lead by Jean-Pierre and François.

    One of the first domaines to practice organic viticulture in 1950, Château de Beaucastel has been biodynamic since 1974. Unusually the domaine plants all of the 13 grape varieties permitted in the Châteauneuf du Pape AOC, with Mourvèdre being the signature grape often making up a third of the blend.

    Amongst other things, Beaucastel is famous for vinifying wine ‘à chaud’, a controversial technique where grapes are rapidly heated when they arrive at the winery, extracting colour and aroma and killing harmful bacteria. The wines are all matured in 500 litre oak casks and are bottled with a light fining and without being filtered.

    “This reference point estate continues to achieve incredible quality in just about every vintage.” - Jeb Dunnuck - The Wine Advocate
