    November 15, 2019 - Pop ‘n pour from 55 degree cellar. Dark chocolate, plums and raisins. Dense with lots of depth and still very youthful. Very fine grained tannins give it excellent structure. Still has many years ahead of it and should get even better once it starts showing signs of secondary development.

    November 4, 2019 - Nice wine but ultimately a bit disappointing given name and vintage. I found it fruit first (and fruit last, if that makes sense) - this seemed way less rustic than older Beaucastel and I cant say I like that switch. If you like a rich and smooth red-fruited wine, upgrade this.

    October 18, 2019 - Good but not great. Not convinced of this vintage. Beaucastel always hard to assess because of bottle variability. Perhaps this a weak bottle but no obvious signs of any flaw.

    September 30, 2019 - Descant for 1.5 hrs.

    Appearance : med ruby, with legs

    On nose : med+ intensity, mostly secondary aroma : sweet vanilla, tertiary aroma: thyme, leather, peppery spiciness

    On palate : dry, med acidity, red and black fruit: cherry, lichorice, tea leaves, leather, herbal tea, sweet and very fine tannin, with med finishing.

    It is good match with lamb chop, very complex and it is a very typical CPD, everyone loves it. Sweet tannin and herbal taste is the significance. Good structure and very lovely! Drink it now to enjoy the peak of this!

    September 28, 2019 - A dark colour; intense, raisiny fruit, with spice, a touch of sweetness and good length. Just about ready and should keep well. A fine Beaucastel.
