Château de Beaucastel has long been regarded as one of the most celebrated estates in Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The vineyard is situated at the northern limit of CNDP where it benefits from its exposure to the mistral winds. All 13 permitted varieties are planted in the vineyard and used in the wine.

"yellow with apricot colour. The bouquet shows big promise – pear jam with a ginger-spice tone, an orange marmalade richness, coconut. This is heading towards interesting variety, gives a typical drift of Roussanne salt. The palate is shaped Ω like a Greek omega = it starts tenderly, builds intensity, then ends smoothly. The initial flavour is a soaked fruits salad with white raisin, follows up on cooked citrus fruits, vanilla, camomile tea. A rolled up ball of wine; I find the 2012 more persistent and well spread, even if this is wondering where to go next, pre-shutdown. It bears the fat of 2011, could have greater freshness. Notes of brioche plus flan show on the finish. 2029-31." John Livingstone-Learmonth
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
