The winery takes its name from the Beaucastel family which lived in Courthézon in the middle of the 16th century. Records show a Pierre de Beaucastel buying a barn and some associated land at Coudoulet in 1549, and this land is still part of Château de Beaucastel's holdings. However, at this time it was an agricultural property. In 1792, the owner was called Etienne Gontard, and the first certain mentioning of vines on the property are from his inheritance 40 years later.
Blend: 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 10% Counoise, 10% Syrah and 5% Cinsault.
2012 is a Châteauneuf-Du-Pape is an absolutely remarkable showing and one of the most compelling wines from the vintage.
Complex aromas of dark cherries and sweet dark plums, layered with exotic spices, chocolate, licorice, floral, smoke and hints of leather all come together in the glass.
On the palate this is richly textured, backed by round tannins which are beautifully polished with no hard edges.
Remarkable balance with an excellent concentration of dark fruits spices through the long seductive finish. This is already outstanding and should continue to evolve gracefully for many years to come.
