With a very youthful initial pop of butter tinged graham cracker this quickly settles down revealing sweet and sour cherried fruit with medicinal and root beer tones. A bit of alcoholic heat compared to the older wines. There is a toffeed sweetness to the nose conveying a sense of ripeness though this offers up nice minerality and fine complexity with its gamey, peppery, black tea notes. In the mouth this is it’s typical round and friendly self. The acidity is on the soft side and the tannins are fine and ripe. Filled with relatively simple black fruits this is fun but lacks complexity though it does finish with nice black spice to complement the black fruits. A fine wine but lacking in this company 2008 – 2016 89pts

...One of the most charming Beaucastels since it was first bottled (and still holding on today) is the gorgeous 1985. Its medium ruby color reveals considerable amber/pink at the edge. This offering demonstrates that a wine does not need a lot of tannin and power to age well; it s all about balance. Velvety-textured opulent sweet and appealing this remains a classic Beaucastel...
