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.

"full, dark red – dark, black tints within the robe. There is an ample spread across the nose, a mix of oak and honey, rich black fruit and a lurking feral-game air. The fruit side is oily, reflects liqueur blackberry from Dijon, to which is added the smoky licorice of the Mourvèdre. The palate offers a big ball of black fruit, layers of fat richness. Tar, tar, more tar on the aftertaste, licorice on the rampage. A Big Jungle Beast – though there is enough life on its sides to not be OTT (over the top). It is powerful wine that coats the palate with an intensity of “dark” sensations. Balanced wine, so it will live long. Its length is enormous, lasting. Cedar, cigar box aftertaste. Wait until ?? 2019, for instance. “The hot summer produced a lot of structure, a lot of texture,” Pierre Perrin." 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.
