Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape 1995
|Brand||Château de Beaucastel|
Wine SpectatorVery youthful, with a ripe core of red currant and raspberry fruit and licorice flavor surrounded by creamy tannins. Plenty of smoke, mineral and tobacco notes chiming in, but this still has a ways to go, with plenty of grip still on the finish.--1995 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Drink now through 2025. 20,000 cases made.
Wine AdvocateStill closed and tannic, the 1995 requires an additional 5-6 years of cellaring. It should keep well through 2020.
