2013 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Château de Beaucastel

A surprisingly concentrated, pure, ripe and very expressive nose with loads of dark cherries and a black forest gâteau-like sweetness, transcended by Beaucastel’s hallmark lift and elegance. The palate is simply effortless and delicious, with a gentle texture, superb balance and fleshy, fresh fruit. Jeb Dunnuck notes: “The Mourvèdre is the star of the show...this should come together beautifully in bottles and be one of the vintage’s strongest efforts”.

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.
