Château de Beaucastel 2020 Vintage En Primeur
Owned by the Perrin family, Château de Beaucastel is one of the Southern Rhône’s most well-recognized and highly respected names. We have followed the property for many, many years; they are always the first to release the new vintage onto the market En Primeur, which we tasted in London in early October 2021.
2020 is a poised, elegant vintage, where excellent weather conditions throughout the growing season, with less intense heat than in 2019, have resulted in wines that boast beautiful power with freshness. A fairly mild winter was followed by a radiant, warm, windy spring, which allowed the soils to preserve their water reserves and flowering to be completed smoothly. Good weather continued in June, July and August, with plenty of warmth and significantly cool nights, along with consistent wind, preserving the freshness of the vines and maintaining perfect conditions for the grapes. Harvest took place in idyllic conditions, allowing each plot to be harvested at ideal maturity, the grapes being juicy, ripe and having superb balance of natural acidity.
Tasting these wines this month, we were impressed by their fine harmony and vibrancy. It is with great pleasure that we offer the following to our customers, En Primeur, for shipment to the UK in autumn 2022.
