In 1321, under the reign of Pope John XXII, four barrels were brought from the papal cellar in Avignon to be filled with wine in Châteauneuf. Subsequently, the Popes increased their vineyard holdings in the region and the papal wine gained in fame. The Beaucastel family were living in Courthezon by the middle of the sixteenth century. In 1549 "Noble Pierre de Beaucastel" bought "a barn with its plot of land extending to 52 saumées at Coudoulet". Later, the manor house that we know today was built here and you can still see the arms of the Beaucastel family sculpted in stone in one of walls of the drawingroom. The Beaucastels were among the more notable families of this little town and in 1687 Pierre de Beaucastel, in recognition of his conversion to Catholicism after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, was appointed "Capitaine de la ville de Courthezon" by Louis XIV.

  • Acquiesce Winery makes some fantastic whites.  They are very focused on ... cuttings, originating from Chateau de Beaucastel in France.  This particular vintage of Belle Blanc is a CdP-style blend of Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, and Viognier.   The beauty of this wine is that it is not a big fruity or tarty bomb.  This one needs some air.. about...

    Wine review by thefallsman


  • A ridiculous number of trigger pullworthies in this new offering, many in their absolute drinking prime. Wish the shop was just down the street from me, rather than the ones that are. But then I'd have to live in NYC.  ;-(I love it when a guy drops 100 cases on a shop, just to 'make some space" in his cellar. Wonder what's going to be filling th... Read More

  • JD, the price.  Really, both the coudelet and the Chateau Neuf were extremely similar in taste and structure, I'd have a hard time telling them apart in a blind tasting but then again, that's my unsophisticated palate talking.Here's a bit more cool stuff:Beaucastel galets stones. Can't imagine how you could work the vines having to walk on these... Read More

  • Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Red 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A nice wine from Orin Swift. This is a blend of Zinfandel and a handful of other grapes. Had very nice undertones of earth and stone with some big fruit and a touch of residual sugar. Definitely a bold wine, and though we drank it without food, I suspect this would hold up well almost any type of beef. Again, not great but definitely not bad. Read More

  • I'm finding that I've stopped drinking - and therefore buying - the 'glamour' bottles that I used to love opening at the drop of a hat, and while I still have around 50 of these bottles in my winecave at home and another ten cases in bonded storage, I have little interest in drinking these on a weekly basis. There's simply too much pressure - on... Read More
