TN: 2015 Chateau Beaucastel CdP

From 375

This is probably the 6th or so split of 15 beaucastel I’ve had. Each have been delicious.

Dark purple in the Grassl Cru glass.

Lovely bouquet of black currants, violets, and some garrique on the nose. Fine tannins. Surprisingly open, at least for now. Generous, with plenty of fruit, but not over the top. Alcohol is not overly noticeable. Long finish. Consistently probably my favorite southern Rhône.

Was pretty impressed with a 16 I had last weekend. These are awesome.

Could have got some at a local shop for $70 but passed. They had way to many good deals under $30 that I stocked up on including 2014 Donjon for $28 and 2014 Liquid Farm Bien for $28 and even better 2015 Liquid Farm La Hermana for $20. I am sure down the road will pick some up.
