Chateau de Beaucastel, Chateaneuf-du-Pape, Rhone Valley, France, 750ml

£89.95

A blend of all 13 authorised varieties (18 since 2009) allowed in a Chateauneuf du Pape, this wine comes from a site with nearly 500 years of history. Beaucastel is famous for its Brettanomyces character. While often regarded as a fault, this feature is common in wines containing high percentages of Mourvedre and is regarded as an integral part of the wine.
