Château de Beaucastel Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin 2006
Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsualt make up the blend of this<br/>distinctly superiour Côtes Du Rhône from vineyards surprisingly<br/>close to the Beaucastel Château itself. The 2006, true to the hall-marks<br/>of this very approachable vintage, boasts ripe dense blackberry and cassis<br/>fruit, with finely wrought tannins and a peppery flourish at the finish to<br/>underline provenance. <br/>(Simon Field MW, BBR Buyer)

now this is a red to get your hands around as it gets around you Good Value for the money
This may just be the best wine I've tasted. Branham Jazz is right up there as well as the 2002 Silver Oak Cab but for $35-40 you simply won't find a better wine. Very rich, complex, more chocolate than fruit, simply outstanding.
This is my fovorite wine - no other wine seems to change so much from opening the bottle and the first pour to an hour later (or so) when I'm finishing the bottle. This wine is a regular in my celler and goes well with or without food. It's extrememly versatile in pairing with almost anything.
We first discovered this wine in a restaurant in Denver Co. What a delight! This is one of the most delicious reds I have ever tasted. Bold, full & rich in the mouth, but so smooth in the finish! A personal favorite for special gathering.
Among my top 5 favorite bottles ever, at any price.
Very bold. Very delicious.
External Reviews for Château de Beaucastel Red Rhone Blend Châteauneuf-du-Pape Hommage à Jacques Perrin
Clean and fresh, bursting with fruit and spices. Full-bodied, it delivers some game, truffle, vanilla notes. It's distinctive and ought to reveal wonderful terroir with age, but for now it hasn't come together. Needs time. Drink now through 2020.
( 120) Vivid ruby. Spicy finely etched red berry and cherry aromas are complicated by fresh lavender herbs and minerals. The palate offers tangy raspberry and cherry skin flavors with gentle tannins adding shape. Impressively pure even delicate with outstanding finishing clarity and length. This beguiles rather than brutalizes; I underestimated it last year. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
Ruby-red. Powerful red and dark berry aromas verge on liqueur-like but are enlivened by zesty mineral and anise accents. Lush, supple and sweet, with deep raspberry and cherry flavors, fine-grained tannins and complicating herb and smoked meat tones. Very smooth on the finish, which is sappy, deep in cherry flavor and impressively long.
Dark ruby red. Full-bodied. Medium fruit. Moderately tannic. Black fruits, herbs, tobacco. Reasonably packed and solid, with some jammy character. Not as flattering, ripe or aromatically developed as one would expect. This might improve with some cellar age.
A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2006 Chateau Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc 750ml
Much like it was in 1998, the blend for Beaucastel's 2003 Chateauneuf du Pape includes more Grenache (50%) since that varietal was both consistent and of high quality. The balance is 20% Mourvedre, and 30% such varietals as Syrah and Counoise. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by an earthy style, moderately high levels of tannin, and neither the suppleness nor forward flamboyance of the 2000 or 2001. Dense, full-bodied, and structured, the 2003 is clearly a vin de garde. It will require 5-6 years of bottle age, and should drink well for 15-18.
Ripe and fleshy, with lots of black cherry, plum, anise and tar flavors riding along a succulent palate. Sweet and velvety on the finish; this is drinkable now but will age easily. Drink now through 2011.
