A fabulous, ready to drink Chateauneuf du Pape
We are pleased to offer what is truly one of the world's most special red wines from a great vintage. It is a re-release from the winery, so the provenance is impeccable.
This is truthfully one of my personal favorite wines in the world.
Robert Parker's review: "As I stated last year, there is no Hommage a Jacques Perrin in 2006, but Beaucastel’s 2006 Chateauneuf du Pape is performing even better from bottle than it did last year. Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a big, sweet perfume of black truffles, camphor, earth, incense, new saddle leather, and loads of peppery, blackberry, and herb-infused, meaty, black cherry fruit. Deep, full-bodied, and dense, with sweet tannin, this explosively rich Chateauneuf is a stronger effort than the 2005, 2004, or 2003. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2028. 95 points."
