Cellar for up to 10 years. No need to decant it. With its 60 hectares of old vines, the 16th century Chateau de Beaucastel is the historic cradle of the Perrin family. In 1909, Pierre Tramier took over the estate and then passed it on to his son-in-law Pierre Perrin, who gave the estate its full development. Pierre’s son, Jacques continued his father’s work until 1978, when he passed the business to his sons, who still run the winery with their respective sons. Chateau de Beaucastel was the first vineyard in the Rhone Valley to be certified organic since 1964. The vineyard is located in Chateauneuf-du-Pape, very close to Courthézon. Roussane represents the majority of the assembly, with small additions of Grenache Blanc, Picardan, Clairette, and Bourboulenc. The 2020 vintage was characterized by beautiful climatic conditions: the mild spring was followed by a hot but not torrid summer, with cool nights that kept the grapes cool. This resulted in a balanced wine with excellent aging potential. The golden color of this Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc is captivating: its brilliance and intensity are impressive. The complex aromatic bouquet evokes almonds, white fruits, and flowers, but also some fine spices. The palate is elegant and supple, perfectly balanced between the power and the delicacy of the aromas. Served at 10°C with fish, fine poultry, or veal.
