Bottle Size Bottle (750ml) Color/Type Red Country/State France Price $10 - $30 Producer Ch Beaucastel Region Rhone: Other Southern Rhone Varietal Rhone Blend Vintage 2009
A very, very, good vintage for Beaucastel's super-premium Cotes-du-Rhone grown just across the road (and over the AOC line) from the estate's Chateauneuf du Pape vineyards.
"The 2009 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet red represents the essence of Provence in its notes of ground pepper, new saddle leather, lavender, kirsch, garrigue, and abundant red and black fruits. This complex, evolved, luscious red begs for a bloody grilled steak. With a creamy, medium to full-bodied texture, this gorgeous, complex, evolved wine should be enjoyed over the next 7-8 years."Wine Advocate 90 points
