Beaucastel 2018
Vintage

  • The good weather then lasted throughout the harvest, allowing to pick each parcel at perfect maturity. They began on August 22 with Viognier which gave wines with nice balance. The white grape harvest continued until September 3rd. White Grenache expressed a lot of salinity and tension. The white Châteauneuf du Pape was barrelled at mid-fermentation allowing to work the fine lees which brought roundness and balance. The red grape harvest began on 7 September with Syrah in Côtes du Rhône, followed by Grenache, Mourvèdre and Carignan. The harvest ended on October 5th in Vinsobres. The alcoholic fermentations went well: during the maceration we favoured soft extractions with daily pumping over. The malolactic fermentations started spontaneously at the beginning of November on all the wines.

  • In this 2018 vintage, the wines of Gigondas are silky and elegant, the Vinsobres more round and opulent and the Châteauneuf-du-Pape have a beautiful aromatic complexity with a nice balance.
