Chateauneuf du Pape doesn't get much better than this. In fact, Rhone blends don't get much better than this. The legendary Chateau de Beaucastel needs almost no introduction and is a benchmark of quality for the appellation. Consistently earning high praise from critics, it has previously won Wine Spectator's Wine of the Year award. The 2019 Beaucastel only deepens the legacy with a wine that knocks it out of the park. Combining the perfectly ripened fruit from the great 2019 vintage with the winemaking prowess of the Perrin family, Beaucastel has created a legend in the making.

The previous vintage (2018) was an amazing wine and the 2019 continues a five year streak of outstanding vintages for this iconic producer dating to 2015! Chateau de Beaucastel in 2019 is as much of a sure thing as you can get.

While we are still awaiting reviews from the Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator and James Suckling, the early returns are excellent.

Decanter gave this wine a score of 96 Points, calling it, "extremely delicious, balanced and fresh."

Rhone loving critic Jeb Dunnuck also scored this 96 Points noting its, "stunning aromatics of blueberries, violets, peppered beef, leather, and spring flowers."

The palate on this wine is full-bodied and laden with tremendous concentration and depth of fruit. This fantastic wine is youthful and its charms will continue to evolve for years to come. This is the type of wine to buy several bottles of and marvel as it evolves and gains complexity over time. Exuberant in youth, remarkably poised after a few years and a confident, welcome friend at 10 plus years of age, this is a stunner to enjoy at every stage of its development.

Chateau de Beaucastel is a wow wine, which is a must have for wine lovers. As an added bonus, we have a small number of magnums available as well.

DECANTER 96 POINTS - "Immediately rich and damson-scented with a shot of cassis running through it. A medium-bodied, very classic vintage with good freshness. Has a good sense of weight and drive, not endlessly deep like 2017 or 2016 but perfectly balanced. Should age well into the medium, if not long term, but what's more important is that it's extremely delicious, balanced and fresh. Grenache and Cinsault fermented in cement, Syrah and Mourvèdre fermented in foudre. A little less Syrah this year."

JEB DUNNUCK 96 POINTS - "The 2019 Châteauneuf Du Pape is the usual blend of roughly 30% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, and the rest a mix of permitted varieties that was brought up in foudre. It offers a vivid ruby/purple hue as well as stunning aromatics of blueberries, violets, peppered beef, leather, and spring flowers. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, and elegant, it has just a kiss of classic Beaucastel wild, sauvage nuances, ripe, silky tannins, and a great finish. Give bottles 4-5 years of bottle age and enjoy over the following two decades."
