about this wine:
"One of the great estates of the Rhone Valley, Chateau Beaucastel has
been run by several generations of the Perrin family, beginning with
the late Jacques Perrin (who died in 1978), then the brothers
Jean-Pierre and Francois, and now their sons Thomas, Marc, Pierre, and
Mathieu. Beaucastel has nearly 200 acres in vine in Chateauneuf du
Pape, and they have branched out with an impressive operation under the
Perrin et Fils label, purchasing grapes and acquiring land (in
Vinsobres and Gigondas, for example). Their goal is to become the most
recognized name for high quality wines in the southern Rhone. As shrewd
consumers know, one of the best values in under $10 a bottle wine is La
Vieille Ferme. The Perrin et Fils cuvees include wines made from
purchased grapes as well as their new acquisitions in Vinsobres,
Gigondas (25 acres), and the Cotes du Rhone village of Cairanne (35
acres). The Perrins enjoyed tremendous success with their 2008 red
wines, largely because yields ranged between 18 hectoliters per hectare
for Beaucastel, to only 20 hectoliters per hectare for Coudoulet. The
mildew that affected everyone was the culprit. The entire family
acknowledged there was an extraordinary triage and culling out of the
grapes at the sorting tables." - Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
the prominent people in the town of Courthezon during the sixteenth
century was the Beaucastel family. In 1549, "Noble Pierre de Beaucastel"
bought "a barn with its land holdings, containing 25 saumées at
Coudoulet". More than four centuries later, this remarkable domaine,
known today at Château de Beaucastel, is producing what most people
acknowledge to be the finest wines of Châteauneuf-du-Pape.
"Beaucastel and its subsidiary wines marketed under the Perrin et Fils moniker are consistently among the bright shining stars of France. I have been visiting this estate for nearly thirty years, and over that time I have seen all the elements of what makes wines great - an incredible respect for the vineyards, a conscientious, uncompromising work ethic, and extraordinary passion for gentle handling of fruit from their sites." -Robert Parker
