1989 Beaucastel [Chateauneuf Du Pape]
[Blend/Cuvee - Other]
Posted by unknown on 2004-03-05 06:44:20 [Show TN in Text Format]
Chateau/Producer:Beaucastel
Country:France
AOC:Chateneuf Du Pape
Region:Chateneuf Du Pape
Wine Score:95
Notes:Ruby red in color with a slight pink edge. Nose of eucalyptus, but nowhere near as dominant as the 90 and revealing more fruit and complexity. Medium-bodied. In contrast to the 90, this wine was explosive, almost with a new world-type up front character but instead of revealing sweetness, a very refined, complex and mysteriously benign yet intriguing finish. Beautifully balanced. 94-95
Tasting Date:2003-12-22
Varietal:Mourvedre, Grenache, Counoise, Syrah, Cinsault
