Château de Beaucastel Coudoulet de Beaucastel 2014
Another great 2014 is the 2014 Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône, which comes from a parcel located just a stone’s throw from the Chateau, on the other side of the A7 highway. Offering lots of sweet cherries, cedar, white pepper and spice, it’s medium-bodied, charming and downright delicious. It’s always one of the longer lived Côtes du Rhône out there and should drink nicely through 2024. RP

VinousBright violet. Intense dark berry and cherry compote aromas are complemented by suggestions of licorice and candied flowers. Palate-caressing black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors pick up peppery spice and lavender qualities on the back half. Rich yet lively, showing no excess fat. The juicy, focused finish is given shape by silky, harmonious tannins and leaves behind a gently sweet dark berry note.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Coudolet de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône is a Provençal, charming effort that's loaded with dark berry fruit, bouquet garni, leather, and garrigue aromas and flavors. Rounded, forward and still with mid-palate depth, it's geared for drinking over the coming 5-6 years.
