The 2016 vintage in the Southern Rhone valley is exceptional, both in terms of quality and quantity, thanks to idyllic weather conditions that protected the region from climatic accidents throughout the whole year.
Château de Beaucastel has long been regarded as one of the greatest wines in France. It is notorious for its elegance, balance and ageing potential. Beaucastel has an exceptional terroir at the Northern limit of Châteauneuf du Pape, exposed to the Mistral wind. All thirteen varieties of the appellation have been organically grown since the sixties.
A wine of rare quality! Deep ruby in appearance the nose is very fresh, with notes of chocolate. The mouth is round and reveals ripe fruit, soft tannins and good length. Gorgeous acidity and balance. Serve around 15°C and, if possible, decant the wine.
