Winemaker Notes: A beautiful dark color, the nose shows pretty notes of red fruit, raspberries, wildstrawberries, spices, and garrigue. The palate is powerful, full, with great finesse.The tannins are velvety and the finish has great length.
Robert Parker - “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. Range: 90-92."
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."
