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.
Château de Beaucastel has long been regarded as one of the greatest wines in France. It is notorious for its elegance, balance and aging potential. Beaucastel has an exceptional terroir at the Northern limit of Châteauneuf du Pape, exposed to the Mistral wind. All thirteen varieties of the appellation have been organically grown since the sixties.

Brilliant ruby. Spice-accented aromas of ripe red fruits, candied flowers, earth and smoky minerals; a zesty white pepper quality emerge with aeration.
Sweet, expansive and energetic on the palate, offering intense raspberry, spice cake and lavender flavors and a subtle touch of smoke.
Completely stains the palate and shows outstanding clarity on the strikingly long, focused finish, where smooth tannins make a late appearance.
