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.

  • Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape Red 2011


    Great flavor at affordable price. Thick bottle like Primitivo di Manduria from San Marzano. Found it in a Japanese discount chain. They imported boatloads when dollar was still low. Thanks to Joe Shirley I'm enjoying excellent Zin in the land of great Sake but overpriced wine. Read More

  • Chateau Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape Hommage 2009


    This 2009 Blend of Counoise, Cinsault, Mourvedre, Grenache & Syrah from Rhone, France is excellent. Good Ruby-red color with a tight rim variation. Fruit notes of plum and fig with a hint of cocoa and tobacco. It has a long finish on the palette with mid acidity. This wine has not peaked and will mature nicely over time (2019-2024). Best served ... Read More

  • Châteauneuf-du-Pape has been on fire lately. With spiraling prices and an explosion of points fueling that rise, it’s both hard to ignore Châteauneuf-du-Pape wines, and perhaps harder still to buy them. These wines were once the purview of all wine drinkers—slightly rustic at one time, exuberant bistro wines filled with rich fruit flavors in a s... Read More

  • Sometimes the wine gods conspire against you. I actually knew something like ... often awe inspiring wines of Chateau de Beaucastel. Now you might have read that I am not a particularly enthusiastic fan of Chateauneuf, which is true since I am usually the one writing that, but the truth lies more with Grenache than with the wines of Chateauneu...
