Dark ruby colour, with bright red tinges. Nose still a little closed before decanting, expressing quintessential fruit, macerated with spices. The mouth is round, ripe and fleshy, and the generous finish ends with fine and velvety tannins.

Wine AdvocateThe 1998 is unquestionably one of the great modern day Beaucastels, but because of its high Grenache content, it is different from some of the other classics.

Wine EnthusiastA big, rich wine with huge amounts of fruit oozing out of the glass. Great concentration and intensity, with licorice flavors from the Mourvèdre, finishing with chewy tannins. A great year for this wine, which should age well for 15 to 20 years.

Wine SpectatorVery youthful, with a juicy blast of red plum and fig fruit flavors on a racy frame, this also has plenty of spice, tar, plum cake and mineral in reserve, as the finish shows more structure and slowly darkens with time in the glass. Only just starting to hit its stride.--1998 Châteauneuf-du-Pape retrospective. Drink now through 2027.
