Château de Beaucastel 2011 Chateauneuf-du-Pape (Rhone Valley) France
Availability: BCLDB Signature stores
Date Tasted: February 27th, 2014
Tasting Notes: Perhaps lacking in the power department when compared to the opulent and dense 2010, the 2011 thrives on subtle layers of sweet red and dark fruit, dry rock, fragrant flowers, warm garrique and smooth tobacco aromas and flavours. Classic, quietly intense and long with ultra-fine tannins and an elegant character. Drink 2016-2030.
