The 2005 Esprit de Beaucastel continues to drink brilliantly and offers more than a passing resemblance to a top Chateauneuf du Pape from the south of France. Medium to full-bodied, elegant and layered, it has lots of Provencal herbs, dried flowers, leather and hints of olive, as well as ample fruit in its charming, balanced and complex personality. It's fully mature, but will cruise for another 4-6 years, and certainly, keep even longer. - Jeb Dunnuck

Exotically perfumed aromas of smoky cherry and dark berries complicated by black cardamom violet and tobacco. Chewy dark fruit flavors flesh out with air but maintain focus gaining a candied licorice quality on the close. Refuses to let go of the palate but is in no way sloppy. On the contrary: this displays outstanding energy and brilliant mineral lift.
