2014 Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Château de Beaucastel

The 2014 Beaucastel underlines why this wine is so great; the homogenous site ensures that the sense of terroir is captured, more than ever in a relatively cooler vintage such as 2014. Yet the palette of varietal potential is such that the capacity for fine tuning is wonderfully complex….in 2014 the relative dearth of Grenache in the previous has been reversed and , by way of contrast, there is a little less Syrah. Mourvèdre remains a key component, adding savoury richness and authority at the back of the palate. The young wine is sweetly seductive, with velvety tannins and a herbal backdrop,
