    June 18, 2017 - Too young, but starting to show some secondary leather and earth on top of ripe black fruit.

    June 18, 2017 - Largement, très largement meilleur que le 2013 bu hier. Au niveau de la puissance et de la complexité on a un grand vin qui est à son apogé. En bouche on a des fruits légèrements confits et des épices. C'est un vin éclatant, avec une belle longueur.

    4,5/5

    June 11, 2017 - When oh when will I learn not to open Beaucastel too early? This was dominated early on by earth, tar, and mineral scents; very dark loam and cumin on the palate. Just hints of what it could be in a few years. Touch of garrigue on the nose. Not rating it because I just screwed it up. Leave it alone for at least another 5 yrs, maybe a decade is a better idea.

    May 9, 2017 - from 375ml, mature aromas, again, a good level of spice to the aromas. medium tannin to the palate, some underbrush and garrigue. in a nice spot for drinking.
