Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 2014

$64.99

93 Points - limited release                                 One of the top-rated Chateauneufs from the vintage - limited.  93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:  "The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is a beautiful wine in the vintage, and Marc compares it to the 2012. I’m not sure I agree, but there’s no denying the quality in this 2014. Sporting a deep ruby color and terrific notes of blackberries, ground herbs, pepper and Provençal spice, it shows the more forward, charming nature of the vintage and is medium to full-bodied, pure and balanced. Drink it anytime over the coming decade.... ...One of the standout tasting while I working in the southern Rhône, the Perrin family, now largely under the helm of Thomas, Marc, Pierre, and Mathieu, continues to produce some of the top wines, at numerous price points, in the southern Rhône." 93 Points Vinous: "Deep ruby. Potent smoke- and peppery spice-tinged cherry and black raspberry aromas are complemented by suggestions of licorice, smoked meat and candied flowers. Densely packed and taut on entry, unfolding quickly to offer sweet black raspberry and cherry-cola flavors that are given vivacity and spine by juicy acidity. Concentrated yet energetic in style, offering excellent closing thrust, smooth tannins and lingering notes of sweet dark berries and spicecake."

The spice and dried fruit were super strong. After an hour in the decanter, it mellowed slightly. Definitely needs a bit more time, but I sure do love this wine!!!

Delicious! Excellent now but will get even better with time. Restrained fruit with a long finish. Not at all harsh.
