AGING: the coupage is aged in oak foudres for a year.

ELABORATION: each variety is harvested separately and by hand. The vinification is carried out in oak fermenters for reducing varieties (Mourvèdre, Syrah) and in traditional enameled concrete tanks for
Oxidative grapes (all others). After the malolactic fermentation, the different varieties are mixed.

The Winery

Château de Beaucastel

Château de Beaucastel

Some would argue that Beaucastel needs no introduction, but this website aims to cater for both, wine-lovers and beginners, and therefore I will continue. Beaucastel is regarded by many as one of the top estates, if not the top estate, of Châteauneuf du Pape, in the Southern Rhône Valley. Whereas others focus on Grenache, with a mixture of other varieties, Beaucastel uses a high proportion of Mourvèdre, matching the contribution from Grenache in the final blend.

4 /5

Nearly black in colour. The nose is very delicate and powerful at the same time, with red fruit, blackcurrants, blackberries, spices, thyme and lavender. The bouquet is very elegant, rich and round, with figs, cherries, blackcurrants and stewed fruit, all with great acidity. The tannins are present but very delicate.

This rather mild wine pairs perfectly with roast lamb I've already tried it. Nice chat with friends.
Outstanding cherry colour with a low layer. Strong aromas of oak and cedar. Blueberry flavour.

4/5

You will all have heard of Beaucastel, a fantastic wine made by the Perrin family with extraordinarily innovative techniques.

The vines are around 50 years old and the yields are never over 30 hectolitres per hectare.
Their vineyard is in good shape thanks to organic cultivation methods. The wine is intense and structured and this is mainly due to the large proportion of Mourvèdre grapes in the blend(30%).

The Grenache grapes(30%)create warmth and roundness. Blended together with the Syrah, Muscardin, and Vaccarése grapes, spicy and chocolaty aromas come through and will provide long ageing potential. Another 5% of Cinsault give it that special bouquet.


We tasted the 2011 Beaucastel at the Domaine and found it superbe.
You can distinctly tell the influence the scorching temperatures have had on this vintage by the strong flavours of balckberries and wild grass, black olives, plums and violettes.
On the palate, the fullness of this wine is striking. The tanins are very prensent but well incorporated into the blend. This wine is meant to age.

You couldn't find a better Beaucastel if you tried!Drink or keep: 2020- 2030Delicious with: Braised Meat

Red with purple highlights. Fantastic berry aromas. It has an appropriate bitter end.
The best wine for a fish dish, like tuna.
The Château de Beaucastel is a familiar wine of Château de Beaucastel.
