Château de Beaucastel

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhône Blend 1998

Worried about the light, “thin” first impressions… but never fear. No Brett..round and fruit forward… resolved tannins…a teeny bit missing acid, but a superb foil for Scottish Chateaubriand on this cold Edinburg evening. Juicy cherry with a hint of forest floor. One of the “good” bottles of older Beaucastel. — 3 days ago

Domaine du Pegau

Cuvée Réservé Châteauneuf-du-Pape Red Rhone Blend 2019

2019 vintage. A perennial fave CDP. 14.5% ABV. Blended with a lucky 13 (!!) different grapes but mainly Grenache (80%), Syrah (6%) and Mourvèdre (4%). Plushy, fruity and spicy nose. Medium-heavy body. Big, full fruit and structure frontal and mid palate with the spice kicking in at the end. Drinking great now and this will be a fantastic wine for the holidays but pack away/hide what you can afford to for the years to come because this is a wine worth tracing over the next two decades. — a month ago
