Showing consistently with the barrel review the 2010 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape (30% Grenache 30% Mourvedre 10% Syrah 10% Counoise and the remainder an assortment of varieties) is a classic Beaucastel that has both richness and elegance. Showing loads of black cherry new leather licorice pepper and hints of flowers on the nose this full-bodied structured yet surprisingly elegant and polished 2010 has fantastic purity of fruit superb balance and knockout length. Showing more and more structure with air this needs 3-5 years of bottle age and should evolve gracefully for upwards of two decades or more.

Dark, dense and very closed now, this has a tremendous core of crushed plum, linzer torte and blackberry confiture waiting in reserve. Ample singed cedar and mesquite, warm paving stone and black tea notes lurk in the background and glide through the finish. Features serious grip, but wonderful integration. Should cruise in the cellar. Best from 2016 through 2035. – JM

Interestingly enough even though many of the 2010 Perrin et Fils selections from the southern Rhone were scheduled to be bottled right after my visit the 2010 Beaucastel had already been put in bottle. This is a gorgeous wine a classic blend of 30% Grenache 30% Mourvedre 10% Syrah 10% Counoise and the balance the other permitted varietals in the appellation. Deep purple with loads of bouquet garni beef blood blackberry kirsch smoke and truffle this wine is full-bodied rich and showing even better than it did last year. I still think it needs 3-5 years of cellaring and it should last for 25-30 years as most of the top vintages of Beaucastel do. -Robert Parker

Sexy spice- and mineral-accented aromas of red and dark fruit preserves and garrigue. Juicy and expansive on the palate offering vibrant black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors a hint of smokiness and intense minerality. Tannins come on late and are quickly sucked up by this wine's intense fruit. Rich and lively with excellent finishing clarity and length.

Very dense and meaty on the nose. Appetising and no shortage of flesh but no heavy sweetness or alcohol. Really quite racy! Complex. Real lift and line through it. May not reach 14%. 18/20
