External Reviews for Château de Beaucastel Cdp Jacques Perrin
There is an ocean of insipid Merlot in the marketplace, but Marquis Philip's $15 Merlot is as good as most $50-60 California Merlots. The 2005 (100% Merlot aged in new and one year old American and French oak for 12 months) displays a deep ruby/purple color along with plenty of mocha, cocoa, and sweet cherries, a lush texture, and real opulence as well as flesh. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
Merlot is a tough varietal to harness in Australia, and much of it is vegetal and unattractive. However, Marquis Philips' 2004 Merlot is a tasty, dark ruby-hued example with sweet white chocolate characteristics intermixed with notions of road tar, black cherries, and currants. Supple-textured, medium-bodied, and luscious, it can be enjoyed over the next 2-3 years.
The 2004 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape is far superior to the 2003, a wine of considerable richness, tremendous intensity, and impressive definition and length. Usually a blend of 40% Mourvedre, 40% Grenache, and the rest Syrah, Counoise, and other varietals, the 2004 shows a dense purple color to the rim and a big, sweet nose of licorice, blackberries, pepper, Asian tea, spice, and a balsamic note. The wine has fabulous richness, great freshness, full body, and sweet, velvety-textured tannins. This wine should be approachable young, but hit its peak in about 7andndash;8 years, and last for two decades or more.
Deep ruby. Powerful, pungent aromas evoke kirsch, blackberry, smoky herbs and dried flowers. Energetic, penetrating cherry and dark berry flavors are enlivened by juicy acidity and given spine by a tangy mineral quality. A floral quality sneaks in with air, along with notes of allspice and star anise. The finish is sappy, focused and very long, with herbs and flowers lingering.
One of the great successes of the vintage and certainly better than their 2003 is Beaucastel’s 2004 Chateauneuf du Pape. Deep ruby/purple in color with loads of licorice, smoked game, black cherry and blackberry fruit, along with incense and truffle, the wine has fabulous richness, high tannin, medium to full body, and beautiful length, richness, and purity. This is a beauty and one of the vintage’s finest wines. Give it 4–6 years of bottle age and drink it over the next 25+ years. It has the potential to be one of the longest-lived Chateauneuf du Papes of the vintage.
The sexy, plump, seductive, medium-bodied 2003 Merlot offers aromas and flavors of mocha, bay leaves, and berry fruit in a soft, supple-textured style. Drink it over the next 1-3 years.
One of the largest estates in the Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape (272 acres total, with 198 in Chacirc;teauneuf), this property is owned and run by the Perrin family. In the 2005 vintage, they produced their best regular cuveacute;e since 1989 (wine Spectatorrsquo;s Wine of the Year in 1991). the Beaucastel vineyard produces dense and explosive wines form a collage of 13 different grapes, most notably Grenache and Mourvegrave;dre. Each is fermented separately in either concrete or wooden vats. The third year of drought, 2005 only intensified the concentration and structure of this ageworthy red.
