Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, October 2018

    From a parcel that lies just beyond the boundary of the Châteauneuf appellation but is actually an extension of Beaucastel’s single block. It is a blend of 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 20% Syrah and 20% Cinsault, and offers much of Châteauneuf’s appeal in a more approachable format. The 2017 displays dark, spiced fruit cake aromas and a concentrated kirsch character. The finish has a chalky freshness with a smoky black fruit length

    Score: 91-93

    Tasted as a representative sample that was blended from several foudres, the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel looks to be another sensational example of this wine. Sourced just outside the Châteauneuf-du-Pape appellation, it's full-bodied yet silky and long, with standout aromas of lavender and crushed stone backed by layers of cherry and berry fruit. Let's hope the prices don't escalate too much given the vintage's low yields. Drink 2019-2030

    Score: 89-91

    Based on 30% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 20% Syrah, and 20% Cinsault, the 2017 Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet always comes from the same vineyard located just to the north of Chateau Beaucastel, across the A7 interstate. Garrigue, ripe cherries, some dried earth and stony notes all give way to a medium-bodied, elegant, classically built Côtes du Rhône that has enough structure to keep for a decade.

Producer

Château de Beaucastel

Château de Beaucastel, the flagship estate of the Perrin family and masters on the Southern Rhône, makes benchmark Châteauneuf. The best vintages here can age into legendary wines, and an increasing tendency to elegance in the winemaking style of recent years has not gone unnoticed. The Beaucastel vines are all in one large 110 hectare block at the northern end of the Châteauneuf du Pape appellation. The plot contains all the archetypal soil types of the region: sand, clay and limestone, with pudding stone pebbles on the surface. Their Coudoulet vines lie just beyond the northern boundary and convey much of the typicity of a Châteauneuf in a more accessible format. The estate famously grows all thirteen varieties permitted within the Châteauneuf appellation. Beyond the Beaucastel estate, the Perrin family have built up a comprehensive portfolio of wines across the Southern Rhône appellations including Gigondas, Vacqueyras and Vinsobres.

Region

Côtes du Rhône

The largest of the Rhône appellations, it is also has the most breadth and variety in its styles. Its hierarchy ranges from the fruity and ultra light Côtes du Rhône Primeur (made by carbonic maceration), to the standard Côtes du Rhône, to the more concentrated versions of Côtes du Rhône Villages and Côtes du Rhône Villages with 1 of 16 specified villages attached to the label. It is generally known for its fruit forwardness and easy drinkability. Most of the vineyards are found in the southern valley whose main variety is Grenache; however, there are smaller areas in the northern valley that uniquely grow Syrah, therefore producing a very different wine.
