Chateau De Beaucastel Cotes Du Rhone Coudoulet Rouge

Variety: Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Syrah
Region: Rhone Valley, France
Vintage: 2017

A beautiful dark color, the nose shows pretty notes of red fruit, raspberries, wild strawberries, spices and garrigue. The palate is powerful, full, with great finesse. The tannins are velvety and the finish has great length. This vintage will be remembered as the year of all records: the driest year in 30 years, non-interventionist vineyard work, optimal harvest conditions, a very small yield due to climatic hazards, and wines with very rich potential. Each variety is harvested manually and separately, then sorted in the cellar.  Ageing in Oak Foudres for 6 months.

Awards:

92/100
"Still not yet bottled for my June visit (it was scheduled to be bottled at the
end of the month), the final blend of the Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet de
Beaucastel was showing plenty of garrigue and dried-spice notes layered
over cherry fruit. Full-bodied, silky textured and long on the finish, it should
drink well for a decade or more." Wine Advocate.

92/100
"Abundant, rich and ripe red fruit with lightly spiced pastry and quite
brambly complexity. The palate has a super fleshy, bold and upfront-tannin
shape. Fresh and easy. Drink now." James Suckling

91/100
"Juicy and direct, with a core of blackberry and plum fruit, laced with a
singed alder thread and backed by a dusting of garrigue on the finish, which
reveals a nice tug of dark earth. Should open up with some cellaring. Best
from 2020 through 2028." Wine Spectator
