Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 1994

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

This wine is a bit closed at the time of tasting and requires a few more years ageing in the cellar before opening.

The 1994 was also outstanding. Considering it is nearly 20 years old, it still had incredible fruit flavour, but with slightly sweeter tannins and the all important freshness.

A nice mix of red fruit, herb and sweetly earthy flavors give appealing complexity, while soft tannins make it accessible now. The long finish promises improvement with age.
