Description

Join Chateau de Beaucastel on Wednesday 28th November for an absolutely amazing tasting of their full range of Chateauneuf-du-Pape wines including older vintages and their highly elusive white wines. A perfect tasting to get ready for Christmas!

 

Chateau de Beaucastel began life in 1549 and has ever since been at the forefront of quality, and has become synonymous with the Chateauneuf-du-Pape region. The modern era for Beaucastel began over 100 years ago when the Perrin family married in, and made the unusual choice of replanting the vineyard (after the ravages of phylloxera) with all the thirteen grape varieties allowed in the appellation as opposed to concentrating on the Grenache, which was the 'easiest' variety giving good fruit, alcohol and colour. It is not surprising, therefore, that Beaucastel ages so well and develops such complexity.


The other principal distinguishing feature of the estate is that the grandfather of the current generation decided to go back to the old way of doing things in 1964: that is, he would no longer use any chemical herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers. There would be a drop in yield of course, but as he saw it, a gain from the re-establishment of life chains in the soil and all the things which derive from doing things naturally, that we now know about. This was many years before the word 'organic' was used in the way that it is now, so Jacques Perrin was way ahead of his time.
