Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby color aux bright red overtones. Intense nose of the macerated red fruits spiced with leather.

The mouth is supple and round, with a fresh but elegant finish, with a fruit and Garrigue aftertaste.

Critical Acclaim

JD 91
Jeb Dunnuck
More evolved on the nose and in color than the ’95, the 1996 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape is right in the wheelhouse with spicy, licorice-infused fruits, roasted meat, truffle, and a touch of leather on the nose. While the aromas lack of touch of clarity, the palate is beautiful with medium body, a smooth, precise texture, good acidity and a clean, long finish. Still going strong on the second day, this is delicious now and should continue to drink well over the next decade or longer.

The first evidence of Château de Beaucastel as it exists today is in the sixteenth century. In 1909, Pierre Traminer bought the estate and then transferred it to his son-in-law Pierre Perrin, a scientist who further developed Beaucastel. His son, Jacques, continued his father’s efforts until 1978 and today, the torch is carried by Jacques’ sons, Jean-Pierre and François. They are joined by the fifth generation of Perrins—Marc, Pierre, Thomas, Cécile, Charles, Matthieu, and César. 

The vineyards of Château de Beaucastel are located on historic land where each of the 13 approved grapes varietals of the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation are planted. The art of blending these 13 grapes has been passed down from one generation to the next. Beaucastel is, first of all, a family story, the story of Famille Perrin. Their main strength is being able to blend the talents of each family member to run the wine estate under common values: absolute respect for land and terroir; biodynamic culture as a philosophy of life; and the research of truth, balance, and elegance.
