Beaucastel Beauty – 97 Pt Chateauneuf du Pape

Spotlight: Beaucastel Beauty:

In 1549, Noble Pierre de Beaucastel bought “a barn with its land holdings.”  Now, more than four centuries later, this remarkable domaine, known today as Château de Beaucastel, is producing what most people acknowledge to be the finest wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
In 1903, a young chemical engineer and mathematics professor named Pierre Perrin, together with his father-in-law, began to restore the domaine following the ravages of phylloxera. His son, Jacques Perrin, took over the domaine in 1953 and introduced many improvements and innovations. Today, the third and fourth generations of Perrins, François and Jean-Pierre and Jean-Pierre’s sons continue in the tradition of their father and grandfather.
For generations, this property has produced stunning world class wines vintage after vintage.  But the 2015 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf  du Pape is the most highly rated basic Châteauneuf in its history.  That is saying something.  And it’s here.
