Château de Beaucastel, Châteauneuf-du-Pape 2016

RRP £52.5

A classic vintage for a classic house, the 2016 is lush, deep, and creamy with a profound expression of stony minerality undergirding waves of aromatic baking spice, dark cherry, and raspberry, and garrigue. The tannins are silky and integrated; finish long.
