2020 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge BIO
Château de Beaucastel is located in a magical setting dotted with vineyards, centuries-old olive trees and truffle oaks. Beaucastel, that is the most famous wine of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Here you will find nature in its purest form and its power comes to rest. The typical rolled boulders are the secret of its vineyards in which gnarled vines grow in traditional 'gobelet' shapes. On this ancient soil we find the 13 grape varieties that are permitted in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation. All these 13 grape varieties form the basis of the mythical blends of Château de Beaucastel, where they are grown biodynamically. They are one of the last to make use of the richness and complexity that this blend offers.
The history of Beaucastel starts in the early 17th century. The Perrins appeared in the early 20th century. We are now five generations further and there is a global company in the field of quality wines. From very affordable to the absolute top. Everything about the vision, technique and vineyard management that has given Beaucastel the coveted global top position applies to the vineyards and the wines with the other appellations of origin, such as Ventoux, Luberon, Cotes du Rhone, Gigondas, Vinsobres, Rasteau and Vacqueyras. While retaining its own character; the differences between the wines are great and prove the respectful working method. The Becausastel Chateauneuf du Pape is the famous wine from Perrin and contains the thirteen grape varieties of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation with a strong share of Mourvèdre and Grenache (30% each) , Syrah 10%, Counoise 10% Cinsault 5% and the rest divided among the other grape varieties: Vaccarèse, Terret noir, Muscardin, Picpoul, Picardan, Bourboulenc, Roussanne.
