Château de Beaucastel
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
To be enjoyed with burgundy beef or a provencal veal square.
The slow maturation of the red grapes and long vinifications provided aromatic wines with freshness and finesse. The Syrah is gorgeous and Grenache is fruity and balanced. This 2014 offers wines with lots of fruit and balance. The tannins are soft and silky, with lots of volume.
