Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

Opening up considerably since I tasted it from barrel, the 2010 Esprit de Beaucastel is a superb blend of 45% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, 21% Syrah and 4% Counoise that was aged all in foudre. It delivers loads of ripe blackberry, plum, licorice, roasted herbs and hints of flowers to go with a medium to full-bodied, rich and mouth-filling profile on the palate. Textured, layered and rich, with a firm underlying core of tannin, this superbly balanced beauty should be given 2-3 years of bottle age and then consumed over the following decade. Drink 2015-2025.

(45% mourvedre, 30% grenache, 21% syrah and 4% counoise): Bright ruby-red. Exotically perfumed bouquet of ripe red fruits, Asian spices, lavender and cola. Pliant, sweet and lithe, offering intense raspberry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors along with hints of star anise and blood orange. Finishes silky, sweet and long, with resonating floral notes and excellent focus.

One of the top's of the afternoon - had some interesting almost grapefruit flavors to accompany lots of bright plum, pepper, blackberries - it was clear that grenache wasn't dominant here and I think there's much more to come with the next bottle at a future date.

Beautiful nose, but a little simple on the palate. Tastes a little cooked.
