Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2006Regular price $130 Save $-130.00
Headed by the Perrin family for several generations, Château de Beaucastel is one of Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s largest and most renowned estates. The family farms their 200 hectares of vines organically, which are uniquely dedicated to all of the region’s 13 permissible grape varieties (however, Mourvedre remains their signature grape). Their signature CDP cuvée incorporates all regional varieties and is vinified in large oak casks. 2006 was a rather hot vintage, leading to a ripe final wine noted with flavors of black cherry, chocolate, and garrigue. Drink now or hold for another 5-10 years.
