Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 1995

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

Very youthful, with a ripe core of red currant and raspberry fruit and licorice flavor surrounded by creamy tannins. Plenty of smoke, mineral and tobacco notes chiming in, but this still has a ways to go, with plenty of grip still on the finish.--1995 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Drink now through 2025. 20,000 cases made.

This wine has strong tannins. Therefore we suggest waiting a few more years before opening. Decant a few hours before if you decide to open now. Stand the bottle upright 48 hours before serving to avoid any deposit.

A nose on notes of leather and prunes. A beautiful freshness on the palate supported by expressive but elegant tannins that are similar to the northern Rhone. Decant before drinking.

This vintage signs a great year. The colour reveals a beautiful deep red, the nose is full of freshness with notes of noble leather and mature cheese. The palate is very fruity, with good acidity.

A nose with delicate notes of mint, an aromatic mouth and full of promises. A wine to wait for.
