Chateau de Beaucastel 2018 Rouge
A dark and winey style, the Beaucastel Chaeauneuf du Pape Rouge 2018 offers a mix of plum, black currant and black cherry notes, infused with black tea, fruitcake and anise accents. Solidly built, vibrant and energetic from start to finish, this carries copious fruit easily through the lengthy finish. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvèdre and Counoise. The Grenache and Cinsault are fermented in cement, while the Syrah and Mourvèdre are in foudre. Finely pixellated fruits of the forest aromas with a full bodied but fresh and lively palate. The Mourvèdre element is strong, bringing vibrancy and power. It’s firmly savoury, very dry and dramatic. A seriously structured Beaucastel for the long term.
This beautiful wine shows ridiculous floral and fresh aromas of licorice, lavender and spice, all backed by tremendous fruit that goes beyond black and red and into hints of exotic stone fruit. It’s rich and concentrated yet silky and lithe, with a fantastically long, elegant finish.
