    March 30, 2019 - Brilliant and delightful with complex cherry, kirsch and blackberry with a long bracing finish to remind you of the brilliant future it has. 375ml

    January 20, 2019 - 6/7 years old is the youngest I’ve had Beaucastel. For me, I prefer 10-15 years old. Currently it’s lush and intense, bursting with black fruits, maraschino sweetness, and spicy licorice. It stains the glass and lingers on the palette, lasting a bit too long if you’re having it with a meal. This is a drinker’s wine today.

    January 7, 2019 - Beautiful red plum / mulberry colour wirh a dark core. Stunning nose of garrigue, red plum, sandlewood, incense and spice, red currant, blacl cherry and more. It just goes on and on amd on. Succulent palate bursting with concentrated, sweet ripe fruit. Wow, right off the bat! Huge amounts of red and black fruits, some savoury notes, and a slight tartness on the palate. So much fruit, but still finishes with firm drying tannins. Heady stuff! So delicious! Easy 95 points!
