External Reviews for Château de Beaucastel Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape
This rich red still shows the backward intensity of youth, with a dark color and initially reductive aromas. But be patient mdash; behind the firm tannins therersquo;s a core of ripe, rich plum, with notes of game, herb and mineral that promise complexity with age. Best after 2000.
Good full red. Less obviously ripe aromas of black cherry, dark berries, cocoa powder and smoke, plus a faint medicinal nuance. More open in the mouth today that the last; shows lovely sweetness and texture and very good cut and thrust. Hints of leather and game. Not quite as ripe as the rsquo;97, but finishes quite persistent, with a subtly perfumed quality. This may well be for drinking after the rsquo;97.
1989 is one of Beaucastelrsquo;s most successful vintages. Delicious young, it continues to age slowly as well as positively. The only problem has been reports about defective corks causing leakage (I bought several cases of this wine and have experienced no such problems). The winersquo;s dark ruby/purple color reveals slight pink developing at the rim. Intense aromas of pepper, dried herbs, new saddle leather, spice box, truffles, Asian spices, and black currant/berry fruit are followed by a full-bodied, moderately tannic wine with superb concentration. This youthful Chacirc;teauneuf-du-Pape should continue to age well for 10ndash;15 years.
Clean and fresh, bursting with fruit and spices. Full-bodied, it delivers some game, truffle, vanilla notes. Itrsquo;s distinctive and ought to reveal wonderful terroir with age, but for now it hasnrsquo;t come together. Needs time. Drink now through 2020.
Saturated, deep ruby-red. Multidimensional nose of smoked game, roasted coffee, minerals and spice (less civilized than the rsquo;96); simultaneously animal, vegetal and mineral like the best vintages of Beaucastel. Great velvety sweetness in the mouth; thick with extract yet fresh and shapely. Solid underlying backbone is buried in fruit. Very subtle and very long; tannins are substantial but fine. Offers great potential for aging.
Fresh and fruity, with smooth tannins, this delivers nice cassis, blackberry and cherry notes. Good acidity leads to a mouthpuckering, racy finish. Drink now through 2003.
Deep ruby to the rim. Moderately full-bodied. Balanced acidity. Highly extracted. Mildly oaked. Minerals, black fruits, earth. Youthful and intense, with a lean and angular impression on the palate, buoyed by firm acidity. Crisp and flavorful finish shows length.
