We also tasted it again recently at our Grand Tasting in October. We couldn't believe how much better it was now then it was when we first tasted it. The tannins were more integrated into the wine and it displayed an amazing elegance for a young Beaucastel. Jon Visser, our French Wine Buyer, thought it was the best young Beaucastel that he's ever had. Possibly as good as the 1989!

Extremely dense, with layer upon layer of melted fig, mulled boysenberry and black currant fruit, all laced with notes of charred mesquite, hoisin sauce and Kenya AA coffee. The long, silky mouthfeel belies the latent power in reserve-and there's a lot of it, with waves of grip driving the finish. Best from 2010 through 2030.Robert Parker 96 points
Beaucastel’s 2007 Chateauneuf du Pape has turned out even better out of bottle than I predicted. An inky/ruby/purple color is followed by a glorious nose of blue and black fruits, truffles, pen ink, licorice, and meat juices as well as glorious levels of acidity and sweet tannin, buttressing the fruit’s fabulous freshness and vibrancy. This full-bodied effort still displays considerable tannin, no doubt because of the relatively high Mourvedre content. It should resolve its tannins in 2-4 years, and last for 25 or more.--$1/Bottle Shipping on a Six Pack--
