Time to Hit the Library


Châteauneuf du Pape

Library Wines


Just in time for the holidays we have received a few bottles of older vintages from Château de Beaucastel, one of most renowned Châteauneuf makers.  Looking for a special bottle for a present, for that over the top dinner, or just looking to fill a hole or two in the cellar?  This might be for you.

2003 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape  $130
Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape delivers a surprisingly fresh profile, yet ten years after the vintage, it is entering the early stages of maturity. Loaded with red and black currants, iron, beef blood, rolled stone, and garrigue on the nose, with no roasted fruit or over ripeness, it shines on the palate with excellent depth and richness. Medium to full-bodied, supple and integrated, with plenty of ripe fruit, it should continue to evolve for a handful of years.  WA 90pts.

2006 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape  $130
Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a big, sweet perfume of black truffles, camphor, earth, incense, new saddle leather, and loads of peppery, blackberry, and herb-infused, meaty, black cherry fruit. Deep, full-bodied, and dense, with sweet tannin, this explosively rich Châteauneuf is a stronger effort than the 2005, 2004, or 2003.  WA 95pts

2009 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape  $130
Made from this estate’s classic blend, it possesses soft tannins as well as a silky, open-knit seductiveness, a dense plum/purple color and a beautiful perfume of smoky Provencal herbs intermixed with grilled steak juices, garrigue, kirsch and blue as well as black fruits. The wine is full-bodied, unctuously textured, and silky smooth (the latter characteristic being somewhat atypical for a young Beaucastel WA 94pts

2012 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape  $130
the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape offers a full-bodied, decadent style to go with awesome black and blue fruits, garrigue, licorice, crushed flowers and violets. The purity here is truly something, and it has fabulous mid-palate concentration, building tannin and massive texture. Given all of the fruit and texture here, it will no doubt drink well in its youth, but it should still be alive and kicking after two decades as well.  96pts WA
