Château de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet Rouge 2012

The Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet Rouge is often considered the baby Beaucastel. The 30 hectares of Coudoulet are located just east of the vineyard of Beaucastel on the other side of the A7 motorway. Here the soil has many similarities to that of Beaucastel. A blend of Grenache (40%), Mourvèdre (30%), Syrah (20%) and Cinsault (10%) the wine is aged for 6 months in oak foudres. The nose is powerful with intense notes of juniper, black olives and pepper. On the palate there is an explosion of red fruit, with floral and spicy notes, but with a very nice balance combining great freshness, a beautiful complexity, a soft texture and a nice acidity. A wine that has a lot of character.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 

 

Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
