    December 6, 2016 - This wine had been sitting in my cellar for many years and I thought I would gamble with it when I met some friends for a December tasting of a few 20+ year-old CNPs. Amber in the bowl, orange on the rim. Threw some sediment on the decant. Nose was soft, some red fruit, leather and very little brett. In the mouth, it was SOFT, tannins all gone. Still in balance, just a hint of alcohol on the medium finish to remind you this is a CNP.

    December 26, 2013 - This bottle restored my faith that Beaucastel can make clean wines. Not a hint of brett. Shows it's age with a rusty color. Nose of leather and barnyard, but again, not brett, just really clean and pure. Rather full on the palate with plenty of structure. I don't think the flavors will improve, but the tannins are still noticeable yet resolved. Finishes clean and long.

    February 22, 2009 - Brought by a friend to an "open that bottle" evening. A bit past its prime. As it opened it drank better. Not much fruit, stills a very nice wine.
