Description

    Chateauneuf du Pape 1989
    Chateau de Beaucastel
    1hbsl, 2nl, 1cc, 1sos
    Bottle (3)


    "Perhaps the greatest Beaucastel ever produced. Has the class and structure of a great vintage of Mouton-Rothschild. Deep, inky in color, with intense herb, plum, game and spice aromas, this full-bodied wine has an explosion of fruit and an iron backbone." (97 pts. JS, Wine Spectator, Oct. 1991)

    "The 1989 is inkier/purple in color than the 1990, with an extraordinarily sweet, rich personality offering up notes of smoke, melted licorice, black cherries, Asian spices, and cassis. Full-bodied and concentrated, it is one of the most powerful as well as highly extracted Beaucastels I have ever tasted. It requires another 3-4 years to reach its plateau of maturity, where it should remain for at least two decades." (97 pts. Robert Parker, Wine Advocate #E2003, Jan. 2003)


    Estimate: $400 - $500.
