1989 Chateau Beaucastel CDP - 97 Pts!

Château de Beaucastel is a wine producer in Châteauneuf-du-Pape in the southern Rhône. It makes some of the most famous wines in the whole of the Rhône Valley, from a classic southern Rhône blend that includes Grenache, Mourvèdre and Syrah, as well as the lesser-known Counoise and Cinsaut varieties.

In 1549, Pierre de Beaucastel bought a barn and a plot of vineyards and inscribed his family's crest onto the walls. The land passed through the family until 1909, when it came under control of scientist Pierre Perrin. Today, Perrin's grandsons Jean-Pierre and François run the château.

The grapes are hand-picked and are vinified in groups to provide consistency for blending, and oak is used sparingly. Château de Beaucastel's flagship Châteauneuf-du-Pape wine is predominantly made from Grenache and Mourvèdre, with a range of other grape varieties, including a portion of white grapes. There is also a Châteauneuf-du-Pape blanc, which is made predominantly from Roussanne with Grenache BlancClairette and Bourboulenc. Château de Beaucastel also makes a top varietal Roussanne, and a top Mourvèdre-based red wine called Hommage à Jacques Perrin in honor of the current proprietors' father.

Rating 97 RP - 1989 Chateau Beaucastel CDP - 97 Pts! Wine of The Year! The 1989 is inkier/purple in color than the 1990 with an extraordinarily sweet rich personality offering up notes of smoke melted licorice black cherries Asian spices and cassis. Full-bodied and concentrated it is one of the most powerful as well as highly extracted Beaucastels I have ever tasted. It requires another 3-4 years to reach its plateau of maturity where it should remain for at least two decades. (Many purchasers have reported bottle leakage (due to a cork problem) with this vintage. I purchased two cases of this wine but none of my bottles reveal any sign of leakage. RP
