D'un rouge opaque, ce châteauneuf du pape est très invitant avec ses beaux arômes de kirsch et de fruits chauds. Le vin a toute une personnalité. Il est très épicé. Il roule bien en bouche avec ses petits tanins soyeux.
Aroma - dark fruits and tobacco. The fruit flavor profile follows the aroma - sun ripened blackberries. Elegant mouth feel. Balanced finish. Great as a high-end wine to sip before the meal on its own, and also makes just about any red meat dish better.
Boasting a mesmerizing ruby ink core the 2010 Beaucastel CdP is an aromatic bomb packed with intense perfumes of blueberries, raspberries, menthol, tobacco leaf and burnt tar. This full bodied, luxuriously unctuous, yet delicate elixir delivers a generous 14.5% natural alcohol content and envelopes the palate with a delicious soft and silky texture. The flavours are equally intense in the form of creme de cassis, Grand Marnier and caramel, and the velvety finish goes on for nearly a full minute. This beauty will reach its maturity phase in a couple of years once the abundant tannins have fully integrated. It should then cruise comfortably in the cellar for two decades or more.
