Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, September 2019

    This is a beautifully complete example of the great southern Rhône grape varieties, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Syrah and Cinsault. Dark cherry in colour, this has aromas of late picked summer fruits, Victoria plums, damsons and sloe berries. Juicy and succulent in the palate, it is a warming and rewarding style that offers accessibility in its youth but will reward a certain degree of patience as well.

    Tasted as a sample blended from several foudres, the 2018 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel features scents of sun-warmed stones and ripe raspberries. Medium to full-bodied, it's plush and open-knit, already giving a lot of pleasure, and finishing zesty and long.

    From a vineyard just across the A7 interstate, on the northern edge of Châteauneuf Du Pape and not far from the estate, the 2018 Côtes Du Rhône Coudoulet De Beaucastel offers a pretty, medium to full-bodied, elegant profile that’s a great introduction into the 2018 vintage. Complex notes of garrigue, peppery spice, and dark fruits all emerge from this nuanced, balanced effort that will drink well right out of the gate.

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.
