Red wine: Chateau de Beaucastel 2017, Grenache/Mourvedre/Syrah, Chateauneuf du Pape, France

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. This 2017 vintage will be remembered as the year of all records: the driest year in 30 years, non-interventionist vineyard work, optimal harvest conditions, a very small yield due to climatic hazards, and wines with very rich potential. The 2017 vintage has a deep colour. The pure and elegant nose suggests cherries, blackcurrants, spices, with floral notes, aromatic herbs such as bayleaf, and chocolate. The mouth is elegant, the tannins are ripe and fine, beautifully dense and concentrated structure, a seductive velvety texture enhanced with finely spicy fruit. The finish is long, held by elegant and coated tannins, harmonious and very persistent with fruit, spice & floral notes.
