About this Item

Chateauneuf-du-Pape, 1990
1 (1 x 1) 750ml

Château Beaucastel has been run by several generations of the Perrin family and has become one of the most famous wines of France. Unusually all 13 permitted grape varieties are grown, although it is Mourvèdre often makes up a third of the final blend. The Châteauneuf-du-Pape is renowned to age extremely well for a number of decades.

Critics Ratings

Beaucastel made a great Chateauneuf du Pape in 1990. In stylistic terms, it is completely different from the profound 1989. The color is opaque black/ruby/purple. The perfume of smoked meats, coffee, hickory, Asian spices, and black raspberries is sensational. In the mouth the wine, while concentrated, full-bodied, and extremely rich, displays slightly harder tannins, higher acidity, and comes across as a more muscular, less opulent example than the 1989. - Robert Parker 96/100 (2003)
