The 16th century Château de Beaucastel was acquired by the Perrin family in the early 1900s. With a global following for their benchmark Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the wines at this historic property are consistently among the finest in the region.
Château de Beaucastel’s vineyards surround the estate, which is near the town of Courthézon in the north-east of the appellation. A quarter of Beaucastel’s 100 hectares lie just beyond the appellation’s boundary and the fruit from the vines grown here makes up their excellent Côtes-du-Rhône: ‘Coudoulet de Beaucastel’.
This wine is deep ruby red in colour, with intense aromas of ripe raspberry, wild herbs and pepper spice. On the palate, it is full-bodied with great depth and concentration. This elegant wine has a long, lingering finish.
