Tasting advices

Tasting notes
Pretty pale pink color with pastel undertones. Fresh and very aromatic on the nose, this wine has a delicate bouquet with notes of red fruit (currants, cherries), and citrus. Good balance between sweetness and acidity in the mouth. We find notes of fresh fruit with beautiful persistence. This 2017 wine is fresh and balanced, a beautiful expression of this beautiful fruity vintage.
Serving tips
10-12°C on hors-d'oeuvres, cold buffets, tomato salads, grilled meat, ... and other summer lunches.

Reviews and Awards

90/100
"The Perrin family of Château Beaucastel in Châteauneuf-du-Pape make this wine at their estate in Ventoux, blending equal parts Cinsault and Grenache with 20 percent Syrah. The 2017, from the driest vintage they’ve experienced in 30 years, is firm and crisp, with tangy berry flavors playing over a stony savor that holds the wine long and clean."

"Tried and trusted southern Rhône pink, with masses of light, fruity, yet lip-smacking red berry verve."
