    The Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape and Beaucastel is known for planting all 13 grape varietals allowed by AOC Law The rocky terraine reflects the sunlight and holds the heat from the sun and transfers the heat to the vines after sunset. Beaucastel farms their property using sustainable farming techniques and, in fact, was one of the first estates in Chateauneuf du Pape to begin to farm their vineyards organically. Given a solid 97, the Robert Parker review reads as follows: 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Bottled only a week before my visit, I was blown away by how well Beaucastel's 2016 Chateauneuf du Pape was showing. It's full-bodied, creamy, lush and rich, with layers of raspberry fruit, garrigue and spice that unfold across a seamless palate. No doubt it will go through cycles of being open and closed throughout its lifespan, but it would be a mistake to simply order a case, put it into storage and forget about it without trying one first and swooning over the sheer lusciousness and youthful complexity.
