Chateau de Beaucastel – 21/05/2012

Roussanne Vielles Vignes 2010
Spicy floral apricot and honey with some nashi and cumquat. Ripe rich fruit-full and bold, very textured warm and spicy, youthful and heavy, very powerful.

Chateau de Beaucastel Rouge 2009
Spicy violets, crushed red earthy flinty mineral rhubarb. Fresh bold bright and vibrant, good clean tannins, full warm and powerful, elegant yet approachable.

Chateau de Beaucastel Rouge 2005
Denser and earthier, quite full and still quite tight yet picking up some maturity on the nose. Full teture and depth, generous yet developing leathery tannins.

Chateau de Beaucastel Rouge 2001
Stinky reductive and funky, showing bret notes, greatly developed yet subtle. Showing a lot of complexity, balsamic, slightly faecal, quite long with subdued fruit, very shut-down on the palate.
