Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2021

    The 2020 Coudoulet is beautifully scented with bright bountiful fruit streaked with liquorice and dried herbs. The forest fruits that sweep across the palate are crystal clear, revealing black cherry, wild strawberry, raspberry and plum mixed with sweet spice, white pepper and garrigue. The tannins are nimble yet plump and the line of vibrant acidity that flows throughout keeps the palate playful. Energetic and elegant with prolonged freshness.

    A year-in, year-out winner, the 2020 Côtes Du Rhône Coudoulet De Beaucastel offers outstanding quality as well as classic notes of darker fruits, roasted herbs, truffly earth, and some meaty, peppery, gamey nuances. With wonderful purity of fruit, ripe tannins, and a balanced, elegant mouthfeel, it will have over a decade of longevity.

    Score: 16.5

    40% Grenache, 30% Mourvèdre, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault – Syrah and Mourvèdre fermented in oak to avoid reduction, Cinsault and Grenache in concrete tanks. Aged 6 months in foudres. Cask sample. Immediately more scented than some of the intense Famille Perrin range, with fragrant black-cherry fruit and a light herbal quality, as if there were some whole bunch (though I don't think there was). A hint of violets. On the palate, refined tannins, juicy, fresh, moreish. Drink 2023-2028.

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.
