2016 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Château de Beaucastel

Great things are expected of Châteauneuf’s 2016s, and Château de Beaucastel doesn’t disappoint. Richly perfumed and lushly textured, it’s nevertheless deft and elegant. The fruit is pure, and complemented by classic Beaucastel spiciness. It’s impressive as an infant: with time in the cellar, this will be utterly compelling.

2016 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.
