From the producer: Magnificent deep-colour of an intense ruby-red. Typical of Beaucastel, the nose is rich and complex but very fresh, with an opulent aromatic bouquet dominated by notes of fresh fruit and spices. Full,-bodied, soft, eminently silky, this very elegant wine reveals a superb, dense structure on the palate, very fine tannins and gourmet aromas of fresh red fruit, currants and noble spices. The finish has great length, ample and harmonious. A fruity vintage with great aging potential.

The history of Chateauneuf-du-Pape is now well known in the wine trade. It has over a millennia of winemaking lineage and of course the deep connections to Catholicism and the Papacy. French wine experts will also point out that it was the first organized Appellation or AOC in France in 1923. But despite the history and prestige it was only in the last few decades that the wines of Chateauneuf became popular and highly regarded here in the U.S.

The reasons for the quick rise of CDP in the States are numerous, but the ascendency of Robert Parker's Wine Advocate in the late 1980's and early '90s coupled with his close relationship and admiration of the Perrin Family and their famous Chateau de Beaucastel is a top contender.

Indeed the wines of Beaucastel must be given ample credit for Chateauneuf's global popularity. The Perrin family has, through hard work and smart investment, become one of the largest vineyard owning and wine producing families in France. But their flagship and original property is that of Beaucastel.

The wines produced at this Chateau epitomize "classic" Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The property is relatively large but all the vines have been farmed organically for over 50 years. The geology is classic galets (river stones) over sand, clay and limestone. The winemaking is also classic with a combination of oak and cement fermentation followed by extended aging in barrels before bottling.

The results are wines that are both powerful and rich yet balanced perfectly with structure and acidity. They age very well. The combination of fruit, weight and texture makes them recognizable to California wine lovers (another reason for CDP's popularity) yet they have gamey, savory undertones that make them unique and exotic.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 97
"Beaucastel's 2020 Chateauneuf du Pape is shaping up as a blend of 30% each Grenache and Mourvèdre, with 10% each Counoise and Syrah, plus 20% other permitted varieties, including a healthy proportion of white grapes. Complex and red-fruited, with hints of flowers and garrigue, it's expansive and richly textured on the palate, finishing long and silky." -Robert Parker


D 96
"Fresh and bright nose, then a palate with exceptionally smooth and fine tannins, lovely acidity and notes of blackberry and raspberry juice. Particularly fine, elegant and balanced this year. Grenache and Cinsault fermented in cement, Syrah and Mourvèdre fermented in foudre."
