Food Pairings for Château De Beaucastel Cdp Jacques Perrin
Young and hot. Very spicy zin, notes of chocolate. Fairly average - overpriced for almost $30. Very spicy hot finish.
This white wine is composed of 80% Roussanne and 20% Grenache. After picking the grapes and the fermentation of the juice, 30% aged in new oak barrels. The remaining 70% is aged in large wooden Foudres. 2004 seems to be a white wine to the old side, but a wine of this level can easily several years to mature in the bottle and are even benefit from. In the glass, the deep dark golden color is the first thing you notice about this hit from the southern Rhone region. The smell of the wine is characterized by mature tones, intensity and is very typical of a white wine from the illustrious Chateauneuf-du-Pape. We find in the fine fragrance notes of almond paste, apricot, honey and a little tray of orange mare. If the bottle open for some time are showing flowers and a small key from the glass timber up. There is also a slight oxidative tone observed. This is not at all disturbing and just adds a nice element to the wine. In the mouth the wine has a wonderful balance between crisp acidity and a high concentration of flavor. The aftertaste is long and intense. A beautiful specimen of a white Chateauneuf high flavor intensity, beautiful fresh tones and brilliant complexity. Definitely a beauty of a wine from this area. The wine is lovely to drink now, but has half hour to open. Our advice is to consume this wine in 2016, then it will be best. 93/100 Supersnobs.com

magical - did not know a zinfandel could be this good
the purple color is what drew me to this wine. after letting the bottle breathe, jammy and simple. easy to drink... easier to get drunk.
Always try to put this wine away and enjoy it years down the road. But I always pull it out for any special occasion. Hardest bottle to keep!!!
Lovely floral nose followed by luscious honeysuckle, lavender and subtle tropical notes. Great balance & finish; truly a model of finesse & elegance in an offbeat white.
External Reviews for Château De Beaucastel Cdp Jacques Perrin
Distinctive, very monolithic, clean, pure and crisp, with fresh fruit zipping along the palate. Turning a bit tough and tannic, it holds back now, delivering little seduction, hiding well its leather, game, truffle and black fruit character, yet itrsquo;s undeniably balanced. Made to age. Best from 2010 through 2030.
At first glance, this is not particularly impressive; itrsquo;s slightly herbal and rustic, with a raisiny edge to the fruit. But this really improves with air, fleshing out on the midpalate and losing the raisiny notes in favor of plum and savory notes. Give it four or five years in cellar and drink it over the next 15 or so.
The 1998 Chacirc;teau Beaucastel Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape includes more Grenache (40%) in the final blend, as well as 20% Mourvegrave;dre, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and the balance from other authorized grape varietals. It is an explosively rich, remarkably flattering Beaucastel, even after bottling. Most Beaucastels have a tendency to shut down completely, and not reemerge for 6ndash;10 years. Bottled early in the summer, the 1998 is flamboyant, no doubt because of the larger than normal percentage of Grenache. It boasts explosive richness, thick, juicy blackberry and kirsch liqueur, smoke, licorice, roasted meats and truffles. The acidity seems low, and the wine fat, full-bodied, and intense.
Beaucastelrsquo;s 2001 is assertive and intense, its black fruit flavors acquiring leathery, peppery overtones. Its brooding power is complemented by a silky texture, and it finishes with ripe, suave tannins.
Deep, dense red color. Vibrant aromas of cherry, wild herbs, fresh flowers and minerals. Energetic and sweet, showing no overripe qualities; offers a silky, suave texture and wonderfully pure red berry, fresh plum, kirsch and fig flavors. Those with an aversion to the funky, gamey character that can characterize Beaucastel in rdquo;typicalrdquo; vintages owe it to themselves to check this out. Clearly, the Perrins know what to do with grenache, even if itrsquo;s not their favorite grape.
Beaucastel uses more of Mourvegrave;dre, which adds structure and density, than most of its peers do, making it one of the more age-worthy Chacirc;teauneufs. Its rsquo;98 joins the 1978, rsquo;89 and rsquo;90 as a benchmark Beaucastel. The 1989 was our Wine of the Year in 1991.
Full ruby. Highly complex nose combines black fruits, gibier, truffle, road tar, licorice and leather. Very intense and spicy, but still tightly wound, with a firm acid spine keeping the flavors under wraps. ldquo;Very interior wine today,rdquo; notes Perrin. But one already senses the incipient complexity. Finishes with building tannins, a note of caramel and terrific persistence. This will need time.
