    November 26, 2020 - Pretty wine that is still enjoyable for its age.

    August 7, 2016 - Light red. Burgundian colour. Elegant nose of light red fruit, merde and very light earthiness. Delicious light cherry and earth flavours and a balanced light finish.

    Though it seemed like it could be an old Burgundy, there is just a bit of sweetness in the nose that would lead you away from there.

    A very good Beaucastel that shows the animal traits of Mouvedre but in an elegant way.

    March 31, 2015 - fruit was a bit faded, but this bottle was everything promised by the house. aromas of leather. flavors of ripe red plum, this reminded me most of an older merlot. tannin was fully integrated, and the wine had healthy acidity. some baking spice on the finish. excellent, if not spectacular, and was definitely from a well-preserved bottle.

    February 6, 2015 - A mid-winter visit to Châteauneuf-du-Pape; 2/5/2015-2/7/2015 (Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Southern Rhône, France): From magnum. Smoky, meaty and gamey. "Beaucastel goes North" with more of a Northern Rhone personality. Green, some bug spray. Super pure and sweet on the core. Peppery and a bit dry on the finish but overall just stunning. Head shakingly good in fact.

    August 6, 2014 - Very earthy and serving up more barnyard character than fruit, this requires immediate consumption as most of the fruit has faded.
