    (Chateau de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape) Only just the palest wine of the flight, with a red-mahogany hue. Despite this, again the nose is loaded with lush, leafy fruit. There are nuances of ink, game and rubber. Nevertheless the fruit is fading from the palate, which has more gamy and leathery secondary characteristics. A nicely structured wine, with a velvety texture and correct supporting acidity. The tannins have all but disappeared, just showing a little on the finish, together with a tiny flourish of sweet fruit. Quite a length.
