Château de Beaucastel 2015 Châteauneuf-du-Pape

#18 on the Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines of 2018. Vintage 2015 was a magnificent year in the south, characterized by excellent sanitary conditions thanks to the mild, wet winter, followed by a relatively hot, dry spring. The vines coped well with the extreme heat and lack of rain in the summer thanks to good hydric reserves. Following satisfactory flowering, rapid and regular ripening was assisted by rain that fell in August, producing berries rich in phenolic compounds and anthocyanins. As in the north, harvesting took place under excellent conditions. Description : Château de Beaucastel has long been regarded as one of the greatest wines in France. It is notorious for its elegance, balance and ageing potential. Beaucastel has an exceptional terroir at the Northern limit of Châteauneuf du Pape, exposed to the Mistral wind. All thirteen varieties of the appellation have been organically grown since the sixties. 97 Points WS. With a beautiful intense carmine-red colour, this 2015 Beaucastel has a lively attack and very quickly reveals aromas of beautiful red fruit. The finish has delicate notes of liquorice with powerful but not aggressive tannins. A great vintage of Beaucastel red. Serving tips: Around 15°C. If possible, decant the wine.
