Chateau Beauchene 2012 Chateauneuf-du-Pape

Chateau Beauchene 2012 Chateauneuf-du-Pape  (GSM), $28.04-$35.99, 91 points, poured a confounding oxblood-red with a broad transparent wine ring.
Lovely strawberry aroma was accented by those of roses, herbaceous notes, and black cherry (excellent).
Medium-bodied with mouth-watering acidity, fine, grainy, and supportive tannin which managed flavors that were a delicate reflection of the aromas.
Finished intense and long with a flavor remarkably similar to Hot Tamales candy, accelerating tannin (dry red wine), the trailing palate, and a balance 14% alcohol.
Varietals were 80% Grenache, 15% Syrah, and 5% Mourvèdre.

  1. Erm, no Papal keys on the bottle?

    1. VG: I did do some research on this, and it is considered an exclusive bottle symbol, but ostensibly not required; google images have several of Ch. Beauchene wine bottles without the keys or tiara.
      Thanks for the ?

  2. Wow, nice blog about wine. Really helpful for wine lovers. I know a tour site,which provides both wine and bike tour for their customer. You can go there for a visit and taste the wine. I think this is an enjoyable and memorable journey for all wine lovers.

    1. Romane Yoann, thanks for visiting, your kind words, and for the suggestion; I checked Rustic vine tours, and they received a five star Trip advisory score, so others maybe interested in this.
