Beaucastel-$80

 

If you’re looking for an iconic producer of Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Beaucastel has to be on your list. Even though it is a wine that is typically comprised of a bare 30% Grenache, though more in certain vintages, I’m including it on this list.

Chateauneuf-du-Pape is inextricably linked to Grenache and Beaucastel makes good use of it, allowing it to be the flesh that fills out their blend. Mourvedre is the other main component here, blended in with all the other allowable varieties for Chateauneuf, but the Grenache is so fundamental to the region that I think I can get away with this choice. I’m ready for all the dissent that’s headed my way!
