Vinous: 94 Points

Saturated ruby. Displays aromas of ripe, spice-tinged blueberry, cherry and blackberry, along with building suggestions of game, potpourri and sandalwood. Offers concentrated black and blue fruit, exotic spice, licorice and floral pastille flavors that show unlikely energy for their heft. Dusty tannins build through a very long, smoky finish that strongly echoes the dark berry and floral notes.

Wine Advocate: 94+ Points

Now that it's in the bottle, Beaucastel's 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape comes across as full-bodied and rich, but also a bit shut down and reticent on the nose. With air, black olives and asphalt give way to black cherries and briery spice notes, backed by velvety but substantial tannins and a long, richly textured finish. Given a few years in the cellar, I have no doubt this will drink well for the next 15-plus years.
