Wine tasting note: 1995 Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape

1995 Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape

20th Aug 1998 GBP19 Rhone Table Red

Opaque purple/red gradually fading to red at rim - still very young.
Intense nose with herby, stewed red fruits and lots of alcohol - attractive but undeveloped.
Full bodied and warm with sweet, spicy, mouthfilling mulberry fruit. Long, dry finish with ripe tannins coming through.
Drinkable now with a roast but has years of potential.
