Description

The depth and aromatic richness of a Rhône Valley red wine

Founded in the 16th century, Château de Beaucastel was taken over at the beginning of the 20th century by Pierre Tramier. His son-in-law, Pierre Perrin, gave the estate a new lease of life, while its considerable reputation was developed beyond its borders thanks to Jacques Perrin. Jacques Perrin's sons and grandsons continue to perpetuate the estate's quest for excellence, making the family estate one of the finest labels in the Rhône Valley.

The vineyard

Coudoulet de Beaucastel 2020 from Château de Beaucastel is a Rhône Valley wine that stems from a 30-hectare vineyard. The vines are planted on a soil made up of Miocene marine molasse and rolled pebbled, presenting a clear similarity to the vineyards of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Its ability to store the intense heat of the sun during the day and release it at night, this soil helps the vines to get off to an optimum start in the spring.

The vintage

This Côtes du Rhône wine is the fruit of a vintage marked by favourable weather conditions. Milder than 2019, this year was tempered by winds, keeping the vines cool. The summer season was marked by relatively mild temperatures. Continuity of winds and cool nights played a decisive role in the vineyards. The harvest began on 26 August and lasted until the end of September, producing grapes of exceptional quality.

Winemaking and ageing

After being harvested by hand, the grapes are sorted and then heated to 80°C before being cooled to 20°C. Each grape variety is vinified separately. After a 12-day maceration in concrete vats, the juice is pneumatically pressed. Malolactic fermentation is followed by a blend of the different grape varieties separated during vinification. The wine is then aged for 6 months in oak tuns.
