    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    Reviewer, Neal Martin - First tasted May 2001. More open on the nose than Beaucastel 1998. Quite leathery, rustic. Smooth tannins. A nuttiness here. Not as powerful as 98. Lovely integration though with an intense finish. Then in Nov-04 in London. I was very impressed by this wine that would suit those that prefer a more feminine, elegant Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Blueberry, violet and a whiff of black truffles on the nose. Very harmonious on the palate, great focus. Not as muscular as the 1998. Blackberry, pain grille with a touch of sweaty saddle. Great definition. I was won over by this wine. Could drink now, but it will improve over the next 3-4 years.

    Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate

    The prodigious 1999 Beaucastel boasts aromas of blackberry fruit intermixed with cassis, licorice, roasted meats, leather, and truffles. While it does not possess much fat or precociousness, it displays definition and elegance. This is a full-bodied, concentrated, classic Beaucastel. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2025.

    Winery Notes

    Tasting : A deep red nearly black color. The nose is quite mature with notes of brandy, marc and wet wood. The mouth gives off notes of under-wood, quite light and slightly un-balanced at this stage but not aggressive and it has a very good length. This wine must be kept in order to give it time to balance out.
