No introduction needed for Beaucastel... the Perrin family can do no wrong. I would like to note however that production was off 40% in 2017. I would bet that you have a bit of 2015 and 2016 resting in the cellar, so a short vintage couldn't have come at a better time. Don't dilly-dally! Make sure to secure yourself some today, before it's all gone!


A tremendous effort, might Beaucastel's 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape outshine even the 2016? I tasted a preliminary blend that Marc Perrin said represented 80% of the wine, and it showed ridiculous floral and fresh aromas of licorice, lavender and spice, all backed by tremendous fruit that went beyond black and red and into hints of exotic stone fruit. The final blend will likely contain more than 10% Counoise, the highest proportion ever utilized at the estate. It's rich and concentrated yet silky and lithe, with a fantastically long, elegant finish.

95-97 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate (Issue # 238 - Aug 2018)
