« The 2013 Châteauneuf du Pape is a beauty and has a rare level of concentration and depth in the vintage. Blueberry, crushed flowers, pepper, and violet aromas and flavors flow nicely to a medium to full-bodied, structured and tannic Beaucastel that has impressive purity and plenty of length. It's not massive, but still needs 4-5 years of cellaring and will keep for a decade after that. » (Wine Advocate 2015 - Robert Parker)

Wine rated (guide 2016) : 93/100

About this wine : While not the most structured vintage of Beaucastel, this is a full-bodied, creamy-textured rendering of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Finely detailed notes of plum, thyme and leather mark the nose, while the flavors are ripe almost to the point of jamminess. Drink now–2025.

Wine rated (guide 2014) : 17,5/20

About this wine : Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah, Counoise plus a ‘medley' of other permitted varieties. Extremely sweet on the front palate and unusually claret-like in its build (more obvious tannins than most?). A heady cocktail. Lots of tannins and acidity – pretty bruising on the finish.

Vineyard rated (guide 2017) : 5*****Stars (Exceptional producers, representing the very top of quality in France and in the world)

About the vineyard : La propriété est d’un seul tenant, située sur un terroir très spectaculaire de galets roulés, avec un sous-sol très argileux (limitant ainsi le stress hydrique) qui occupe tout le nord-est de l’appellation, autour du lieu-dit Coudoulet. Outre un côtes-du-rhône issu de terroirs contigus, coudoulet-de-beaucastel, le domaine produit quatre vins. En blanc, une cuvée classique où la roussanne est dominante, et même exclusive dans la cuvée roussanne vieilles-vignes. En rouge, le mourvèdre joue un grand rôle, puisqu’il représente près d’un tiers des plantations, autant que le grenache.

About the vineyard : Noble Pierre de Beaucastel » avait acheté une propriété en 1549, restée dans la famille pendant deux cents ans. Le Château mis en vente après le phylloxéra, l'arrière-grand-père, Pierre Tramier, rachète Beaucastel en 1909 pour y planter des oliviers. A l'époque où le grenache était à la mode, son gendre, Pierre Perrin, plante les cépages originels. Il a démarré la biodynamie il y a près de 40 ans. La propriété est maintenant dirigée par François et Jean-Pierre Perrin qui en ont fait un cru modèle.

Vineyard rated (guide 2015) : 2**Étoiles (Ces très grands domaines, souvent dotés de terroirs fabuleux, sont des incontournables qui, par leur régularité et l'excellence de leur production, se doivent de figurer dans la cave des amateurs avertis)

About the vineyard : Avec son terroir si particulier de galets roulés, le château de Beaucastel est l’un des emblèmes de Châteauneuf-du-Pape, d'autant que le domaine peut s'enorgueillir d'être l'un des seuls à faire appel aux 13 cépages autorisés pour élaborer sa cuvée de vin rouge. Un vin régulièrement de très bon niveau, mais qui subit la concurrence de cuvées qui sont venues bouleverser la hiérarchie de l'appellation. Certes, la rarissime et remarquable cuvée Hommage à Jacques Perrin, issue à grande majorité de mourvèdre et produite uniquement dans les grandes années, demeure une référence, tout comme le somptueux blanc roussanne vieilles vignes, qui se révèle avec le temps. Le château de Beaucastel demeure, sous la conduite efficace de la famille Perrin, une référence pour les vins du sud de la France, statut qu'il doit désormais partager avec d'autres domaines qui ont atteint, voire dépassé son niveau.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape is the largest, oldest, and most famous wine zone in the Côtes du Rhône. In the 14th century the papacy moved to Avignon, and Châteauneuf-du-Pape was chosen as the papal summer residence. The popes residing here—and John XII in particular—fostered wine production in the area and developed the vineyards. Production conditions are a constant throughout the ...
