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. This superb red should drink well for two decades.
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 outstanding wine can be drunk now or cellared for 10-15 years. (RP)
Dense ruby. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, creme de cassis, underbrush and licorice. Supple and quite suave, with palate-coating dark berry flavors. Spicy and sweet on the finish, with the berry and licorice notes repeating. This fruit bomb will be delicious young. (JR)
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. *Two Stars*
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. Mourvèdre, Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. (JM)
