Showing the beauty and depth of the vintage, the 2007 Château de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet de Beaucastel sports awesome aromatics of perfectly ripe Grenache fruit, licorice, rolled hot stones, garrigue, and underlying floral notes. Perfumed, complex, and layered, the wine is medium to full bodied on the palate with a superb texture that covers solid structure, good acidity, and a long, focused finish.
The blockbuster 2007 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet, always one of the best bargains from the south, may be the finest Coudoulet ever produced. A blend of 30% Mourvedre, 30% Grenache, and the rest Syrah, Cinsault, and a few other authorized varietals, is incredibly opulent and rich, with sensational notes of black currants, licorice, smoked herbs, and meat juices, a full-bodied mouthfeel, savory tannins, and good acidity as well as length.

This is always delicious and satisfying from the great Chateauneuf producer. Aromas of strawberry yogurt and fresh mint. Full and round, with jammy fruit and soft tannins. Delicious now. Fire up the barbecue.
Ripe but well focused, with a beam of fig and ganache running through the middle, while licorice, mulled spice and incense notes fill in the edges. A tarry hint frames the finish. (JM)
Very dark crimson. Spicy and very lively – not as rich and dense as top Châteauneuf-du-Papes, but very spicy and attractive. Dry finish. Not sumptuous, but with integrity and herbal notes. Lots of acidity and quite a bit of toughness. Pretty heady and rich though a bit brutal on the finish but rich, clear and vibrant and exciting! (JR) 17/20 points
