    (Chateau de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape) This wine looks very different, only slightly darker than the 1981, but a much more youthful red-purple hue. Loaded with fruit on the nose, with an edge of wet pebbles and stones. Freshly ground coffee. This wine seems so young! If I didn't know this was a wine from the early 1980s I would have thought it about five years old just on the nose. The palate doesn't really alter this impression, with plenty of rich and smoky black and red fruits. It is quite tightly held together, although smooth and finely textured, with balanced acidity. Tannins show up on the midpalate and finish leading to a great length. This wine has years ahead of it.
