Château de Beaucastel


Château de Beaucastel Rouge
Château de Beaucastel Rouge

Chateau de Beaucastel has 70 acres of vines planted with red grape varieties. The soil consists of diluvial alpine deposits with rolled pebbles over a former molasses sea-bed of the Miocene epoch (tertiary period). The grapes are hand-picked and then hand-sorted again by skilled professionals. The skins of the whole grapes are first heated to 80℃ and then cooled down to 20℃ in a process called flash heating in order to kill bacteria . Maceration is done using the classic method in open-topped wooden vats for Syrah and Mourvedre and in concrete tanks for the other varieties. The various varieties are blended after malolactic fermentation. The wine is then aged for a year in large oak casks and bottled after fining with egg white. At least a further year’s aging in bottles takes place in our cellars before the wine is sold.
The color is a deep red. The nose has a complex range of aromas, including red berry fruit, leather, truffles and musk. Flavors of pepper, licorice and other spices bring about a sharp atmosphere.


 Grape Varieties
All thirteen grape varieties authorized under the Chateauneuf du Pape appellation are planted: 30% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Counoise, 5% Cinsault.
