Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape 2017
|Region||France, Rhone, Chateauneuf-du-Pape|
|Brand||Château de Beaucastel|
Wine AdvocateThe full-bodied, dense 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape seems a bit closed at the moment, but Asian five spice powder still brings plenty of complexity and nuance to the rich, dark fruit aromas and flavors. Multidimensional, layered and long, this is another terrific vintage for Beaucastel's main cuvée, perhaps falling just slightly behind the 2016 and 2018.
