Château de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet Blanc 2016

Located within the Côtes du Rhône appellation and adjoining the vines of Château de Beaucastel, the vineyard of the Coudoulet de Beaucastel Blanc is 3 hectares (6 acres) in size. A white wine blend of hand picked Bourboulenc (30%), Marsanne (30%), Viognier (30%) and Clairette (10%) grapes the wine is fermented partially in oak barrels and partially in steel tanks. Aged then for eight months in barrels and steel tanks, before blending and bottling. 

With its golden yellow colour, this Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet Blanc is characterised by its great freshness. The palate is well-structured; tense and with good balance, marked by notes of lime and lemony flowers. A beautiful vintage with great freshness.
