Château de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet Blanc 2017

AOC Côtes du Rhône, Vallée du Rhône, France

A year in, year out value is the 2017 Cotes du Rhône Coudoulet de Beaucastel Blanc which is always a blend of Viognier, Marsanne, Clairette, and Bourboulenc. Classic notes of white peaches, flowers, honeysuckle, and almond all emerge from this medium-bodied, supple, textured effort that has plenty of richness and length. Drink it over the coming 2-4 years.

A blend of marsanne, clairette, bourboulenc and viognier, this has aromas of ripe apricots and peaches with hints of mangoes, too. Very exotic. The palate has a very fleshy and creamy, honey-drizzled stone-fruit core. Long and deeply flavorsome. Drink now.
