CHÂTEAU DE BEAUCASTEL CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE 2001 (2)

Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
1 x scuffed label. 1 x stained label

This inky/ruby/purple-colored cuvee offers a classic Beaucastel bouquet of new saddle leather, cigar smoke, roasted herbs, black truffles, underbrush, and blackberry as well as cherry fruit. It is a superb, earthy expression of this Mourvedre-dominated cuvee. Full-bodied and powerful, it will undoubtedly close down over the next several years, not to re-emerge for 7-8 years. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2025. WS 93 WA 96

CHÂTEAU DE BEAUCASTEL CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE 2007 (3)

Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
2 x wrinkled labels. 1 x stained label

Beaucastel’s 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape has turned out even better out of bottle than I predicted. An inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a glorious nose of blue and black fruits, truffles, pen ink, licorice, and meat juices as well as glorious levels of acidity and sweet tannin, buttressing the fruit’s fabulous freshness and vibrancy. This full-bodied effort still displays considerable tannin, no doubt because of the relatively high Mourvedre content. It should resolve its tannins in 2-4 years, and last for 25 or more. October 2009 WA 96
