The 2017 Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet always comes from the same vineyard located just to the north of Chateau Beaucastel, across the A7 interstate A beautiful dark colour, the nose shows pretty notes of red fruit, raspberries, wild strawberries, spices and garrigue, and the slight dried earth and stony notes. The palate is powerful, full, with great finesse. The tannins are velvety and the finish has great length. This elegant and classically built Côtes du Rhône that has enough structure to keep for a decade.
“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.” (James Suckling, 92 points)
