Château de Beaucastel, Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 1998

Beaucastel 1998

Imported by Vineyard Brands, Birmingham AL.

Twenty years on.

Ruby.  Fragrant notes of juniper, evergreen and wild lavender.  Rich inky fruit and roasted, singed even, like a chène vert fire, yet the mouthfeel is nearly creamy.  The finish is positively drenched in extract, a thrill-ride of garrigue-y concentrate.  Now – 2025+.
