- 2001 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf-du-Pape – France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape (1/7/2017)
Tasted non blind. Tasted from Magnum format.
Garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Slightly vegetal nose with some added notes of smoke and black berries. Seems muted, likely very mildly tainted with TCA. Tasted OK with some basic black berries and cherries on the palate. Yeah, I know…never taste a TCA tainted wine. Bright acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Not rated for obvious reasons but I sure did want it to be pristine. (NR/flawed)
