    The Château de Beaucastel is famous for its elegance, its balance and its ageing potential. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2009 benefits from an extraordinary terroir in the North of the appellation. It is a blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise and 5% Cinsault and it is aged in oak barrels for one year. The 2009 vintage of Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape has an almost black colour. On the nose, one can detect a great aromatic finesse dominated by notes of red berries ( blackcurrant, blackberry), spices, thyme and lavender. There is a nice balance between acidity, generosity and fine tannins. It is a robust and serious wine.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    The 2009 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape is reminiscent of their brilliant 1985. It will be one of the rare Beaucastels that is drinkable upon release. Made from this estate's classic blend, it possesses soft tannins as well as a silky, open-knit seductiveness, a dense plum/purple color and a beautiful perfume of smoky Provencal herbs intermixed with grilled steak juices, garrigue, kirsch and blue as well as black fruits. The wine is full-bodied, unctuously textured, and silky smooth (the latter characteristic being somewhat atypical for a young Beaucastel). If it performs like the 1985, it will drink well young and continue to do so for 25 or more years.
