Chateau de Beaucastel 2019 Chateauneuf du Pape Rouge

$ 99.99
2019 is another stellar vintage for Beaucastel's Chateauneuf du Pape. Considered the benchmark for the region by many, the 2019 received 96pts from both Decanter and Wine Spectator magazines.

Decanter | 96 points: “Immediately rich and damson-scented with a shot of cassis running through it. A medium-bodied, very classic vintage with good freshness. Has a good sense of weight and drive, not endlessly deep like 2017 or 2016 but perfectly balanced. Should age well into the medium, if not long term, but what’s more important is that it’s extremely delicious, balanced and fresh. Grenache and Cinsault fermented in cement, Syrah and Mourvèdre fermented in foudre. A little less Syrah this year.”
Wine Spectator | 96 points: “This is pretty gorgeous, with a remarkably pure display of cassis, cherry puree and plum reduction flavors laced every so gently with threads of leather, alder and dried garrigue. The sleek iron spine is buried deeply on the finish, and there’s a lingering hint of warm stone as the fruit echoes through. Built to last. Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Counoise, Vaccarèse, Terret, Muscardin, Clairette, Picpoul, Bourboulenc, Picardan and Roussanne.“
