Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge
Description: 97-Wine Spectator A stunner from the get-go, with waves of thoroughlt seductive boysenberry, plum, blueberry and raspberry reduction forming the core, while rosted apple wood, rooibos tea, bergamot and anise notes flash throughout. 2020 to 2045.

The 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape checks in as a blend of 30% each of Mourvèdre and Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise and the rest a mix of permitted varieties, and they’re more and more keeping the stems with Syrah component. This is a beauty that offers more depth and richness than just about every other wine in the vintage. Blackberry, black raspberries, garrigue, spice and hints of saddle leather all flow to a full-bodied, rich, layered 2015 that has a stacked, concentrated mid-palate, ripe, sweet tannin and an undeniable opulence that’s missing from too many 2015s. Marc Perrin compared this cuvée to 2001, and I can’t disagree with him. Drink this blockbuster beauty anytime over the coming two decades. Jeb Dunnuck, Note : 96+/100, 2017-10-19.
