TASTING NOTES

"Thoroughly primal, with a torrent of raspberry and boysenberry fruit rushing forth. Only shows hints of its full range, with licorice, incense, graphite and mocha flavors fluttering in the background. Has an iron-clad structure, with a long finish that shows great cut and grip. Best from 2009 through 2025. 14,165 cases made." Wine Spectator

"Showing brilliantly, with a deep, rich and layered profile, the straight 2004 Châteauneuf du Pape has gorgeous black cherry, earth, underbrush and background meatiness that gives way to a full-bodied, concentrated and pure feel on the palate. A foudre-aged blend of 30% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache, 10% Syrah and 5% Cinsault, with the balance a mix of the other permitted varieties, this knockout Châteauneuf du Pape will have another 10-15 years of prime drinking. Both of Beaucastel's 2004s are some of the most youthful and structured in the vintage." Jeb Dunnuck, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #211

" Ruby-red. Powerful red and dark berry aromas verge on liqueur-like but are enlivened by zesty mineral and anise accents. Lush, supple and sweet, with deep raspberry and cherry flavors, fine-grained tannins and complicating herb and smoked meat tones. Very smooth on the finish, which is sappy, deep in cherry flavor and impressively long." Josh Raynolds, Vinous.com

"Very deep crimson and fantastic depth of flavour. Still a baby with very fine tannins and a lovely seam of refreshing acidity. Super-fine tannins but no shortage of very complex ripe fruit. Positively scuttles across the palate - so secretive is it at the moment, but the sample I tasted seemed bracingly clean and brisk yet with great depth. No suggestion of Beaucastel's trademark animal flavours at this stage. Good stuff!" JancisRobinson.com
