Château de Beaucastel Coudoulet de Beaucastel Rouge AOC Côtes du Rhône

Coudoulet de Beaucastel Rouge, Côtes du Rhône 2011

Quick Overview

"Definite step up from the classic Côtes du Rhône. Made with grapes grown in and around Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this shows much greater depth of fruit, finer tannins and appreciable length. This will age as well, but is drinking just fine right now."
Montréal Gazette, January 2015

Further Details

‘This wine from esteemed producer Château de Beaucastel delivers on its nickname, “baby Beaucastel.” Made with grapes from a vineyard adjoining the estate’s great Châteauneuf-du-Pape acreage, it’s a terrifically savory red with bright acidity and complex aromas of spice and red fruit.’
Lettie Teague, Wallstreet Journal, 2015
‘Definite step up from the classic Côtes du Rhône. Made with grapes grown in and around Châteauneuf-du-Pape, this shows much greater depth of fruit, finer tannins and appreciable length. This will age as well, but is drinking just fine right now. Serve at 18C. Drink now-2018. Food pairing idea: Filet of pork or roasted chicken.’
Montréal Gazette, 2015.
‘Petit frère (si je puis dire) du Châteauneuf-du-Pape Château de Beaucastel, ce vin rouge de la vallée du Rhône, passablement coloré quoique sans rien d'opaque, a quelque chose d'on ne peut plus alléchant dans ce millésime. Le bouquet, d'assez bon volume, brille par l'éclat de ses arômes de fruits rouges, alors qu'il s'agit sur le plan gustatif d'un vin de corps moyen, aux tannins aimables, souple et ne manquant pas de finesse…’
Jacques Benoit, lapresse.ca, 2014
‘The 2011 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel is another excellent wine from the Perrin Family. Complex and perfumed, with notions of earthy black fruits, licorice and roasted meats, it possesses sweet tannin, medium to full-bodied richness and a great finish. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years.’
91/100 Jeb Dunnuck, Wine Advocate, 2013
‘Very dark crimson. In fact the bluest southern Rhône 2011 to have come my way so far. Quite complex and somehow sharp. Very sweet start and then very firm tannins. Seems much more youthful than some Châteauneufs. Very tight for the moment. Ambitious for a Côtes du Rhône!’
16+/20 Jancis Robinson, 2013
‘The 2011 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet red…is an overachiever in this vintage, exhibiting a dark ruby/purple color, loads of earthy, peppery, meaty kirsch and raspberry fruit, a hint of tobacco leaf, underbrush and plenty of spice.’
88–90/100 The Wine Advocate, 2012
‘Smooth and ripe with complex flavors of berries, plum and spice; full, lush and juicy; long and balanced.’
91/100 Anthony Dias, Blue Reviews
‘La robe est violette aux reflets rubis. Le bouquet est un condensé de prunes, de réglisse et de sous-bois champignonneux. L'attaque est masculine. Les tannins des peaux de cassis et du poivre y chassent de la viande grillée jusqu'en rétro-olfaction, parmi les feuilles de tabac et les épices douces. La crème de cerises et les framboises énamourent la finale. Un vin rouge qui aime les viandes blanches.’
90/100 Le magazine du vin

‘…blue fruit flavors and a touch of lavender adding lift. Dusty tannins shape the finish, which clings with impressive tenacity and subtle spiciness. According to Marc Perrin, the vines that provides the fruit for this wine are now over 80 years old.’
90–92/100 International Wine Cellar, April 2014
