Beaucastel's 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape has turned out even better out of bottle than I predicted. An inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a glorious nose of blue and black fruits, truffles, pen ink, licorice, and meat juices as well as glorious levels of acidity and sweet tannin, buttressing the fruit's fabulous freshness and vibrancy. This full-bodied effort still displays considerable tannin, no doubt because of the relatively high Mourvedre content. It should resolve its tannins in 2-4 years, and last for 25 or more.

Part of our 2007 Tablas/Beaucastel head to head. Gorgeous nose. Blood, animal, plum. A bit chunky and disjointed in the mouth though very smooth with good flavors that matched the nose. Not my favorite that day though others loved it.

Gonna have to assign an situational perfect score here... can't beat brown-bagged Beaucastel byo at the beef noodle place in Tin Hau. A surprisingly strong pairing with beef tripe, brisket, curry and boiled radishes with spicy sauce. #taileebeefsoupbottles
