Beaucastel-$80

 

If you’re looking for an iconic producer of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Beaucastel has to be on your list. Even though it is a wine that is typically comprised of a bare 30% Grenache, though more in certain vintages, I’m including it on this list.

Chateauneuf-du-Pape is inextricably linked to Grenache and Beaucastel makes good use of it, allowing it to be the flesh that fills out their blend. Mourvedre is the other main component here, blended in with all the other allowable varieties for Chateauneuf, but the Grenache is so fundamental to the region that I think I can get away with this choice. I’m ready for all the dissent that’s headed my way!

  • God bless you all at Snooth for obviously discovering my recommendation in a thread with a fellow reader a few months back, for the Domaine du Cayron Gigondas. I shall now struggle to put my hat on, and regret not ordering the 2010.
