Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 6/750 2006
Really dark brooding sort of nose. Leather and dark chocolate as well as espresso that makes for a very appealing and complex nose. The flavours are of earth and woodsy things like mushrooms and chicory but all along supported by a fleshiness, alcohol and tannins that promise long slow evolution. Alcohol is 14.5%. Notes by LAC, February 3, 2012.
96 Points - "One of the more endowed 2009s, this is packed with dark smoldering cocoa, mesquite, tobacco and roasted fig notes, all inlaid with pure cassis and plum preserves fruit flavors. Long and authoritative on the finish, with singed vanilla bean and tar notes adding length and dimension. Best from 2015 through 2026. 4,000 cases imported."
