2007 Chateau de Beaucastel
Gorgeous wine that is brimming with black cherry and plum fruit that gains lots of complexity from the espresso, dried herbs and spice secondary notes. Just entering maturity now, this should provide great drinking for another decade at least. Medium/full body with polished tannin this has a tremendous mouthfeel: full and round without being heavy. We have drank Beaucastel going back to the 1998 vintage and this is their best effort yet.
