2007 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape

SKU #1056536 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A straight up, phenomenal wine, this bottle of 2007 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape was double decanted (poured into a decanter and then back into the bottle) 12 hours prior to drinking and boasted gorgeous aromatics (blackberry, cassis, lavender, garrigue and roasted meat), full bodied power, serious concentration and unreal purity. Very polished and almost civilized by Beaucastel standards, this beauty should drink beautifully for 3 decades. Wow. 96+ Inner quote mark (8/2010)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark 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.

96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This extremely dense red delivers layers 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. *Collectibles* (JM) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Powerful, pungent aromas evoke kirsch, blackberry, smoky herbs and dried flowers. Energetic, penetrating cherry and dark berry flavors are enlivened by juicy acidity and given spine by a tangy mineral quality. A floral quality sneaks in with air, along with notes of allspice and star anise. The finish is sappy, focused and very long, with herbs and flowers lingering. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2010)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark At first glance, this is not particularly impressive; it's slightly herbal and rustic, with a raisiny edge to the fruit. But this really improves with air, fleshing out on the midpalate and losing the raisiny notes in favor of plum and savory notes. Give it four or five years in the cellar and drink it over the next 15 or so. *Cellar Selection* (JC) Inner quote mark (10/2011)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Wonderful coffee, cream and opulent red fruit with smoke and spice. Lovely softness to the tannin, and there is loads of appeal here – although there is a bit of warmth to finish. 17.5/20 points (RH) Inner quote mark (12/2016)
