Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape 2004


SKU 2324


Dark ruby colour with purple tinges. The elegant nose shows ripe cherries, spices and a hint of wild herbs. The mouth is round and finely textured, both fleshy and fresh. Fine balance between lovely ripe fruit and a delicate tannic structure.

Wine SpectatorThoroughly primal, with a torrent of raspberry and boysenberry fruit rushing forth, this shows hints of its full range, with licorice, incense, graphite and mocha flavors fluttering in the background. It's also got ironclad structure and a long finish that shows great cut and grip. Best from 2009 through 2025.
