CHÂTEAU DE BEAUCASTEL CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE 2012

Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
1 x wrinkled label, 1 x marked label

What I think might end up being the best Beaucastel since the 1990 or 2001, the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape offers a full-bodied, decadent style to go with awesome black and blue fruits, garrigue, licorice, crushed flowers and violets. The purity here is truly something, and it has fabulous mid-palate concentration, building tannin and massive texture. Given all of the fruit and texture here, it will no doubt drink well in its youth, but it should still be alive and kicking after two decades as well. October 2014 Drink: 2017-2032 WS 95 WA 96
