Exceptional climatic conditions made the 2009 Beaucastel Red a great wine from a beautiful vintage.
The 2009 vintage can be described as a wine with good structure and soft tannins. The wine is balanced and has great acidity despite the high temperatures in August. This wine has characteristics of great vintages such as 2005 and 2007, with great ageing potential.
Château de Beaucastel has long been regarded as one of the greatest wines in France. It is notorious for its elegance, balance and ageing potential. Beaucastel has an exceptional terroir at the Northern limit of Châteauneuf du Pape, exposed to the Mistral wind. All thirteen varieties of the appellation have been organically grown since the sixties.
