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

In the glass this wine has a bright, clear yellow colour, with undertones of white gold. The nose shows a buttered character, brioche, and a mix of white flower notes, peach and apricot. A wonderful wine that opens with a sharp and lively attack, but not too much. The palate is balanced and complex, with a good persistence supported by a slight salinity.

4/5

- Beautiful golden yellow colour.
- The nose has a lot of minerality with notes of white flowers, honey and marmalade.
- The mouth is round and rich in yellow fruits (peaches and apricots) followed by notes of salted butter caramel and a slightly salty finish.
- The production of white wine at Beaucastel is limited as they only have 7 hectares of white vines planted. The main variety is Roussanne, representing 80% of the blend.
