Château de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet Rouge 2016

AOC Côtes du Rhône, Vallée du Rhône, France

The 2016 Coudoulet de Beaucastel Cotes Du Rhone from Chateau De Beaucastel builds upon the outstanding reputation of the 2015 vintage for the same wine, which was one of my favorite wines I tasted last year. Famous for producing some of the best red wines in Chateauneuf de Pape, this affordable alternative to higher priced Chateauneuf de Papes

Le Coudoulet, qui s’exprime par un fruit juteux, présente une bouche pleine mais équilibrée.

This has a very plush, luscious and generously fleshy feel. Cherry compote, raspberries, blackberries and plums. Tarry elements, too. Smooth, velvety, pure and even. Succulence, elegance and clarity. Such value here. Drink or hold.

Bottled three weeks ago, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel sports a deep ruby/purple color as well as terrific freshness in its blueberry, violets, raspberry, and spring flower aromas and flavors. Showing the vintages purity and elegance, it still packs ample oomph and richness. Drink it over the coming decade.


“Beautifully juicy red fruit that has effortless purity and ripeness. Dry, smooth palate with finely ground tannins, lovely violet fragrance and excellent fruit purity. Tremendous!”
