    January 26, 2020 - From magnum. Closed out of the bottle, this needs a solid decant to open up, but after an hour in the decanter it starts to show dark fruit and has a balance to it that makes it enjoyable with and without food. More air next time from this format but I do enjoy the balance of this vintage. A-

    January 19, 2020 - Popped and poured. A little better than the bottle I drank two years ago, owing to softer tannins. At 20 years of age, this thing is ready to go, but to could last another 20. Flavor profile consistent with previous notes - boysenberry and raisins.

    (Chateau de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape) A fine and deeply coloured wine here, just a light and fine sediment decanted off. Last time it was all macerated fruit and fresh flowers, this time it still has that rich and bright fruit character but there is a deeper suggestion this time, with some intense, slightly high-toned and gamey fruit. It is still floral, with scents of white flower petals, but overall it seems more Mourvèdre-dominated than ever. The palate starts off defined but with a rich, well-polished and lightly creamy core, brimming with dark cherry, charcoal and white pepper. A brilliant and delicious wine, defined and yet broad. Fine for drinking now, but this will give much more with time I am sure.

    (Chateau de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape) A couple of years on since I last tried this, and it still has a dense hue, although with perhaps a little more maturity creeping in at the sides now. The nose is explosive and characterful though, showing a deep array of scents, more complex and intricate than I recall. We still have the cherry element, although it is presented in a richer, darker, macerated black cherry style, and behind this there are notes of polished, minerally stone, flowers, alongside more muted sweet and yet animally elements. Pure, rich and yet well defined on entry, with creamy substance but fresh acids and good balance, this wine is still certainly on the way up, as evidenced by a kick of tannins at the finish. Fine, scented, with dried black olive flavour, yet also substantial, this is excellent wine with bags of potential yet, but it is drinking very nicely now if you like wines that lie on the cusp between primary and secondary characteristics.

    (Chateau de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape) A youthful, dense, concentrated wine which has a very expressive nose. It is filled with fruit of a ripe, cherry confit style, clean and pure, but with a rich, feral seam in the background, and a little furry toffee (if that makes sense!). This is really very, very enticing, and certainly holds a lot of promise. The palate is deliciously cool, rich and broad, quite deep, firmly acidic yet rounded and structured. It is very grippy and full of the promise suggested by the nose. Rich, delightfully extracted, well defined and very exciting. When stacked against 1998, 2001 and 2003, I think 2000 is an under-rated vintage.

    (Chateau de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape) A blood red hue here, showing an earthy tinge too. The nose is dark, earthy, meaty, with perhaps some Brett influence. Slightly chalky tannins on the palate, although there is plenty of texture, and lots of meaty, macerated fruit. Very supple, ripe tannins. A big, impressive, mouthfilling wine built for the cellar. Excellent. Needs ten years.
