Château de Beaucastel, Châteauneuf du Pape 2013
Decanter average score: 17/20pts
Individual judges’ scores: John Livingstone-Learmonth 17.75 Ben Llewelyn 16.5 Marcel Orford-Williams 16.5
Very pretty nose, which is not overt, but rather elegant and restrained. The palate is stylish and mineral, and runs with grace throughout. Very good: it deserves fine dishes – turbot, for example.
