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!

The 2017 Châteauneuf Du Pape is another sunny, beautifully Provençal effort that has a huge nose of garrigue, raw steak, leather, truffle, and peppery spice. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and balanced, it’s not a massive Beaucastel yet it has a classic, Provençal, incredibly satisfying style that will benefit from 4-6 years of bottle age and keep for two decades.

A dark and winey style, offering a mix of plum, black currant and black cherry notes, infused with black tea, fruitcake and anise accents. Solidly built, vibrant and energetic from start to finish, this carries copious fruit easily through the lengthy finish. Best from 2020 through 2040. From France.
