One of the all-time great classics, the 1981 is fully mature and should be consumed. It’s a big, sweet, candied fruit bomb offering notes of smoke, pepper, dried herbs, truffles, leather, cedar, as well as black and red currants. Full-bodied and opulent, it is one of the most delicious, complex, and stunning Beaucastels ever made. Anyone who has magnums of this wine has the equivalent of liquid gold. Out of regular bottle, I would recommend consumption over the next several years.

A giant of a wine. Decant a few hours before serving if you want to drink it now. Deep in color, with super-ripe game, chocolate and tobacco aromas. Full-bodied, with a thick, massive fruit structure and tons of tannins. Has a gigantic finish.

Beaucastel

The château of Beaucastel is an estate located in Courthezon, a town near Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the Vaucluse department. The château is a benchmark in Rhône wines. The château of Beaucastel extends over more than 130 hectares of vines. Three quarters are grown under the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation and the rest is grown under the Côtes-du-Rhône appellation.


In the respect of winegrowing traditions, the castle carries out its harvest exclusively by hand. The grapes are carefully sorted on arrival at the cellar, only the finest grapes will be vinified. All the grape varieties are cuvées separately, each one having its own character, its aromas: Grenache and Cinsault give warmth, color and mellowness, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Muscardin and Vaccarèse: solidity, longevity and a very frank taste. finally Counoise and Picpoul for freshness, and bouquets of particular aromas.


The meticulous work of the Perrin family is different each year and determines the quality, originality and specificity of each vintage. This marriage is the culmination of months of effort, care, loving attention at all times. It is the expression of a terroir in a specific year.
