(2015) There is 70% Grenache in this blend that comes from young vines of the Château de Beaucastel estate and from Perrin family vineyards. 14.5% alcohol. Aged in large oak foudres, it has a big, meaty and slightly antiseptic nose, the hints of something Bretty and Elastoplast-like in the background. The palate bursts with creamy and ripe fruit, plenty of berries, a gamy and earthy edge, and relatively soft tannins into a juicy, but slightly lean finish. A niggling doubt over that Bretty character marks this down a little, though it does drink well in an open and fairly straightforward style.
