2005 Chateau Beaucastel, Chateauneuf du Pape, France

Really bizarre nose at first with notes of medicine and vitamin pills. With air it calms down a bit, but is still tight and shy. My fellow tasters didn’t like it at all and preferred Pegau better. I can’t explain it – but there was something good about it – even though it was a bit awkward at first. Beaucastel is a wine to cellar and it has many ups and down during its lifespan.

This TN is from memory – no notes written.
