Wine tasting note: 1994 Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape

1994 Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape

7th Oct 1998 GBP18 Rhone Table Red

Almost opaque purple, fading to deep red at the rim.
Enticing, alcoholic nose of forest fruit jam, mushrooms and old oak.
Full bodied with sweet, chewy mulberry fruit, violets, cocoa and integrated oak. Ripe tannins and soft acidity.
Long and very good now - if this gets a chance to mature it will be mindblowing!
