Château de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet Rouge 2020
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.
