Nearly black in color. The nose is very delicate and powerful at the same time, red fruit, black currants, blackberries, spices, thyme and lavender. The bouquet is very elegant, rich and round. Figs, cherries, black currants and stewed fruit, all with a great acidity. The tannins are present but very delicate.
"A solid core of kirsch and raspberry compote stands out here, with light savory, pepper and shiso leaf notes. Stays fresh and sleek through the finish. Best from 2018 through 2028." -Rated 91, Wine Spectator
"The 2014 Châteauneuf du Pape is one of the few inky colored wines in the vintage. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and ripe with notable tannin, it offers beautiful notes of blackberry, shitake mushrooms, licorice and pepper meats. It plays in the 2014 vintage’s forward, supple nature, but has real depth and concentration. I don’t think it will be the longest lived Beaucastel, but it will have 15-20 years of overall longevity." -Rated 94, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
