    (Chateau de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape) More than two years now since I last tasted this wine, and this is still a very good and youthful hue, cherry red with a fading rim, testament I would think to the large proportion of Mourvèdre the Perrins use in their blend. A lovely, savage, meaty, bright but chewy cherry character. There is meat stock and roast beef, with a touch of balsamic and liquorice, slight high-toned but nothing remotely acetic or volatile. Nice cool entry, but with immediately apparent creamy texture and lots of tangible substance. Very broad, good acid at the core, lots of density, some good grip provided by ripe and substantial tannins at the end. This vintage of Beaucastel has surprised me before; a 'fresher' vintage, this is remarkable meaty and dense, with great length. This has decades ahead of it, I just hope I have enough bottles left in the cellar.

    (Chateau de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape) This wine has a dense and youthful hue, with a very dark core, and a youthful red rim. The nose has a good complexity, and is quite feral and savage, alongside notes of meaty, cherry fruit. The palate is rich, full and deep, with a dense and grippy character, more so than I would have expected taking into account this is regarded as one of the fresher of recent vintages. There is plenty of texture and substance, and a firm acidity to balance it out. This is quite fine.

    (Chateau de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape) From a half bottle. The colour here is a little less dense and impressive than the preceding wine. It looks a little more youthful though. There is plenty of Mourvèdre character on the nose, with a sweet cured meat note alongside dense, macerated fruit. Fabulous! There is concentration on the palate, but immediately apparent elegance as well. Macerated Mourvèdre fruit, beautifully balanced, and a very fluid, feather-light glide across the palate. Real finesse here. Brilliant. Needs four or five years.
