November - Wine of the Moment

2017 Château de Beaucastel “Coudoulet de Beaucastel”

Cotes du Rhone, France

The 2017 vintage was brilliant for Château de Beaucastel and their “Coudoulet de Beaucastel” seriously delivers on its nickname, “Baby Châteauneuf-du-Pape”! Made with grapes from a very special vineyard plot adjoining the estate’s great Châteauneuf-du-Pape acreage, it’s a terrifically smooth, savory red with bright acidity and complex aromas of spice and red fruit. Ready to enjoy now, yet will easily cellar for up to ten  years.

Wine Advocate “This storied property continues to hit on all cylinders. Owner Marc Perrin describes 2017 as "a 'Californian' kind of vintage," but also says, "It's amazing how balanced the wines are.”

91-93 Wine Advocate – “Still not yet bottled for my June visit (it was scheduled to be bottled at the end of the month), the final blend of the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel was showing plenty of garrigue and dried-spice notes layered over cherry fruit. Full-bodied, silky textured and long on the finish, it should drink well for a decade or more.”

91 points Jeb Dunnuck – “The 2017 Côtes Du Rhône Coudoulet De Beaucastel is a textbook example of this cuvée, and while it tends to be a relatively expensive Côtes Du Rhône, it merits the price. Complex garrigue, ground pepper, and earthy dark fruits all flow to a medium to full-bodied wine that has a polished, elegant texture as well as the sunny, Provençal style of the vintage. It’s capable of lasting for 15 years or more.”
