Château de Beaucastel, Châteauneuf-du-Pape | BKWine Pick

Chateau de Beaucastel, located in the north eastern corner of the appellation, is among the top of the top wine estates in Chateauneuf. The brothers Jacques and Jean-Pierre Perrin takes good care of the heritage created by their father Jacques and grand father Pierre. The vineyards are managed organically since the 1950s. Chemical treatment and fertilisers destabilise the soil and eliminates the terroir characteristics they think.

They have increased the part of Mourvèdre and it now counts for 30% of the total which is high in this Grenache-dominated appellation. One peculiarity for Beaucastel is that they use all 13 permitted grape varieties – all vinified separately – admittedly some in very small quantities. But each variety contributes something in their opinion.

In addition to magnificent red and white Châteauneuf-du-Pape they also have a range of less costly wines from other appellations: Côtes-du-Rhône, Côte du Luberon and Côte de Ventoux under the names Domaine Perrin or La Vieille Ferme.
