Chateau De Beaucastel 1997 Chateauneuf Du Pape 75cl / 13.5%
A bottle of 1997 Châteauneuf du Pape from producer Château de Beaucastel. Unusually, Beaucastel grow and vinify all 13 grape varieties permitted by the A.C.
'Yields for the 1997 Chateauneuf du Pape were tiny, averaging 22 hectoliters per hectare, and the wine is one of the most seductive and forward young Beaucastels I have tasted since the 1985. The blend was 35% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 10% Counoise, 5% Syrah, 5% Cinsault, and the rest other southern Rhone varietals. A seductive, supple-textured, medium to full-bodied Beaucastel, this wine should drink well young, and last for 15 or more years. 89-91/100' Robert Parker, Wine Advocate 1999
