Beaucastel, Chateauneuf du Pape 2005

96 points Jeb Dunnuck
Young but far from unapproachable, the 2005 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape has screaming aromatics of bloody meats, iron, and truffle that are wrapped around a gorgeously fruited core. Medium to full bodied with beautiful structure, a solid, full mid-palate, a smooth, precise texture and a long finish, this is a smoking bottle of wine! (8/2010)

Really dense and locked up now, this is packed with dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit shrouded by layers of tar, hot stone, bittersweet licorice and espresso. The long, dense finish has a great tug of iron buried within it. *#8, Top 100 Wines of 2008, Collectibles* (JM)(4/2008)
95 points Decanter
Château de Beaucastel is located in the northeast of the appellation, and owns 100 hectares of vines that have been farmed organically for over 50 years. All possible red varieties are used for their classic red cuvée. It's beautifully perfumed, with aromas of potpourri and dried autumn leaves. A soft style, it has generous fruit sweetness and good balancing acidity, and this is drinking very well at 12 years of age - a real pleasure. It's very much a creature of its warm, dry, exceptional vintage, and unmistakably Beaucastel. (MW) (11/2017)
