Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 2014

AOC Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Vallée du Rhône, France


A stunning example of this Southern Rhône blend with a smooth, earthy nose velvety texture and fruit-forward style; lovely, generous ripe black raspberry fruit and an exquisite finish.

Sporting a deep ruby color and terrific notes of blackberries, ground herbs, pepper and Provençal spice, this wine shows the more forward, charming nature of the vintage and is medium to full-bodied, pure and balanced. Drink it anytime over the coming decade...

Deep ruby. Potent smoke- and peppery spice-tinged cherry and black raspberry aromas are complemented by suggestions of licorice, smoked meat and candied flowers. Densely packed and taut on entry, unfolding quickly to offer sweet black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors that are given vivacity and spine by juicy acidity. Concentrated yet energetic in style, offering excellent closing thrust, smooth tannins and lingering notes of sweet dark berries and spicecake.
