Not as good as previous bottles, a bit closed and muted. Harsh and a bit hot on the back end, needs time I guess.

Rich berry and cherry liqueur ripe fruit. As usual 14% alcohol and handling it well. Would like to see more the trademark gaminess. Very polished overall.

In the bouquet rich and ripe, lush yellow fruits and some vanilla. Same on the palate. Butter candy and some pleasant bitterness. Beautiful, complex, rich and luxurious wine. Beautifully drinking and ready now, but no real hurry.

Ouvert dans l'après-midi et carafé quelques heures si je me trompe pas.
Une robe encore bien opaque qui me dit qu'on a affaire à du sérieux.
Un vin d'une finesse et d'un équilibre incroyable.Du fruits rouges et un petit côté animal (drôle de terme quand même)
J'ai commencé à sniffer mon chat et pas les mêmes notes du tout !
Je sais que ce n'est pas donné pour un C9P mais cela est sûrement dans mon top 3 à vie de C9P.
Une longueur presque aussi longue qu'une game de mini-putt avec Carl Carmoni.
Tough de passer après Angelus mais l'ordre est parfait.
95 + et beau maintenant mais encore plusieurs années devant lui.

Excellent C9P. Note donné selon mes goûts personnels et non pas selon la référence de l'appellation. Mériterait certainement 97-98 pts pour un C9P. Parfaitement prêt à boire, mais pourra survivre 10 ans+

7/4/2015 - Vinnut Likes this wine: 93 points

Deep, dark garnet in color with ever-so-slight clearing at the edges; almost opaque. Full, fragrant, attractive & complex nose of ripe fruit aromas of dark cherries, blackberries & blueberries with kirsch & garrigue overtones, floral notes, dried Provençal herbs, earthy, dusty, spice notes, some sandalwood & mint, licorice, beefy, leather, minerals, a hint of pepper followed by cedar. Medium-full bodied with a very good concentration of complex, smooth textured, well balanced, seamless, ripe fruit flavors of sweet cherries, tart cranberries & dark plums with herbs, exotic spices, anise, pepper, mint, minerals & toasted oak. Long lingering smooth finish. Drinks quite well at present with decanting & airing, but it is still in its ascendency with the potential for further development from additional 5-8 years of aging.

Brick red rim/ mature funky cherry, cough candy, liquorice and damp earth nose/ fine complex palate, touch of VA, dry , very nice tannin, reasonable length. 13.5% offered great pleasure at the table.

Disappointing. Maybe it's an off-bottle (not corked, though), or a weak vintage, but I expected much more from a Beaucastel. Medium garnet, minimal translucency. Not much aroma at all, and what there is doesn't have much character. Medium body, mostly black fruits, but tannin and acid too prominent for the fruit. One-dimensional. Fairly short aftertaste. I have several more bottles, hopefully better than this one.

Drinking beautifully, even though still relatively young. Dark purple core, with a nose of dried flowers and red fruits. Brilliant complex ripe fruit on the attack, a hint of sweet-tart cranberry on the mid-palate, with a very nice lingering finish. Pairs fantastically with smoked duck. Absolutely first rate CdP.

You can tell this wine would like some more wine, but you don't feel guilty for opening it. Just make sure to give it a proper decant. There's leather in here along with red and black fruit. A surprising amount of pepper which has settled down after several hours.

Cinsault : 5%, Grenache : 30%, Mourvèdre : 30%, Counoise : 10%, Syrah : 10%

This was popped and poured, it seemed quite open and it was well balanced. Drank it with grilled beef tenderloin steaks. I will buy more.

This wine has developed wonderfully. Honeyed citrus and white stone fruits with great nuttiness to it. Palate is soft but still had some acidity to keep you coming back for more. I am very happy with where this wine was. Beautifully golden in color, but not at the end of it's life.

Half bottle off restaurant list. Slow ox'ed for about 30-40 min. Dark garnet with thin translucent rim. The typical pepper notes with cherry and other dark fruit. Seemed to lack a bit concentration compared to other vintages of Beaucastel I have had. Nice wine but have had much better CdP.

This was showing very well, if young. Dark spicey fruit, but quite vibrant for CdP. Good length on the finish. Needs a few years to come around but it looks like another winner.

Finally. This really showed well tonight. This needs a good couple hours in the decanter to blow off the funk and get to a special place. Tonight it had nuanced flavors of spice, cherry, some pepper. Soft and elegant. Good color - still a deep purple. And a solid finish. Glad this has finally come around for me. Also, this wine needs to be served with food. Really brings out the better side of the nuances.

6/27/2015 - chatters Likes this wine: NR

From Coravin. Aromas of honey, bees wax, orange, something slightly floral; like honeysuckle, an oxidative element, cream and slight vanillin hints...with time a slight herbaceous note encroaches. On the palate the wine is rich with almond notes, honey, fig and a waxy texture. With time a marzipan note comes through as well...Long on the finish. Again a slight oxidative note on the palate. I'm really trying to ration this because it is soooo good but I don't think it will get past the end of the year...

Nose of grilled beef gives way to cherry, raspberry, garrigue, and mocha. Intense minerality, smoke, and flavors of raspberry in the mouth. Nice acidity; balanced tannins. Long, lingering, dark finish. Coming into its own and should drink well for 15+ years.

Negociants Australia New Release Tasting: Some high toned fruit and floral notes, some graphite and spice in the background. Very bright palate, with some decent structure to carry it. Nice length, it has interest without feeling too serious.

A bit disappointed at its immediate opening, but soon enjoyed this offering. Yes, it had a deep, crimson color. The nose was a bit musty with leather tones as expected. The aroma was definitely cherry, and lots of it. Very much had a "tar" taste with little terroir. After several hours, we each had a glass or so left and it was much smoother with less of a licorice/tar taste.

As I once noted, it is a nice "cousin" to its namesake but nowhere near as chewy or having the same terroir we all like from great CdP's.
