Château de Beaucastel is set in a magical setting dotted with vineyards, ancient 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 the traditional 'gobelet' shape. On this ancient soil we find the 13 grape varieties that are allowed 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. With this they are one of the last to use the richness and complexity that this blend offers.

The history of Beaucastel starts at the beginning of the 17th century. The Perrins appeared in the early 20th century. We are now five generations further and there is a world 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 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 mutual differences between the wines are great and prove the respectful working method

The most famous 100% roussanne wine is the white Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vieilles Vignes from Château de Beaucastel. A beautiful wine with notes of lime, pear, orange peel, caramel and honeysuckle in the mouth, followed by a lively and very long finish with beautiful acidity. In the nose we recognize aromas of grapefruit, exotic fruit, jasmine, honey, hazelnut and anise. Only 500 cases of 3 bottles are made of this (so 1500 bottles). Parker's last sentence from the review is incredibly beautiful and typifying: "I found it especially hard to spit out."
