2009 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Château de Beaucastel

This has a highly perfumed nose of lavender, raspberry and red cherry. The palate is primary and intense, with notes of herbs and black fruit. It is the balance of fruit, structure and the fine-grained, polished nature of the tannins that is so impressive at this stage. The finish is very long and refreshing. Marc Perrin raved about his Grenache, which - along with Mourvèdre - was the star of the vintage.

2009 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Château de Beaucastel
Famille Perrin

Dating back to 1549, Château de Beaucastel may be the oldest estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, now managed by four members of the Perrin family. One of the first estates in the region to utilise organic viticulture, they are known for their use of all 13 permitted grape varieties, particularly Mourvèdre, resulting in powerful, generous wines. As well as red and white Châteauneuf, the estate produces a Vieilles Vignes Blanc from Roussanne and the extremely rare cuvée, Hommage à Jacques Perrin.
