2008 CHÂTEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE, Château du Beaucastel. Rhône
Alcohol Percentage: 14.5%
Size of bottle: 75cl
Old Bridge Rating: Now fully mature, but still fresh, this is a savoury, earthy Rhône red at its very best. Generous but not over-blown. Last tried in January 2020.
Press Reviews: "The 2008 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the few outstanding wines produced in this vintage. More evolved than Beaucastel’s wines tend to be, it reveals a healthy dark plum/ruby color, notes of licorice, meat juices, smoked game, black currants and garrigue, medium to full body, silky tannins, good freshness, surprising depth for the vintage and a long finish. Drink it over the next decade." - The Wine Advocate
