Description

One of the largest and easily the most significant wine producer in Châteauneuf du Pape, with some 100 hectares of vineyards planted in the marine molasses (sandstone) soil with its famous rounded 'pudding stones' or galets. Their unique and somewhat controversial winemaking method "a chaud" involves the rapid heating of the grapes in the winery, which extracts colour and aroma, kills potentially harmful bacteria homogeneity of the soils across Beaucastel's holdings allowing the estate to make one of the finest wines of the 2015 vintage.

Smells

Beautifully seductive and complex on the nose with kirsch, liquorice, raspberry, spicy cured meats, florals, pepper, graphite and dried herbs.

Tastes

Dense and layered with an elegant medium-bodied feel, the winning combination of dense fruit and elegant savoury notes is classic Beaucastel, echoing the critical acclaim for this as one of the wines of the 2015 vintage. Beautiful now, Beaucastel tends to be at its best around 10 years from vintage through 15 years.
