Château de Beaucastel AOC Côtes du Rhône

Coudoulet de Beaucastel, Côtes du Rhône 2012

Quick Overview

" the 2012 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel looks to be an outstanding example of this cuvee. Showing plenty of black cherry, mineral, cracked pepper and underbrush, it is medium-bodied, possesses great acidity, and gains in both richness and depth in the glass"

Further Details

With a beautiful seductive nose, this young wine is powerful and generous on the palate, with freshness, fruit flavours, spice and vanilla and a good length.

2012 was a vintage of contrasts, with a very mild start to the year followed by a freezing February, a fresh and humid spring, windy and dry July and a hot August. The harvesting conditions were ideal and this mixture of conditions made a great vintage.

The 30 hectares of Coudoulet are located just east of the vineyard of Beaucastel on the other side of the A7 motorway. For reasons that have now become obvious, Coudoulet is often considered the baby Beaucastel. The Coudoulet soil has many similarities to that of Beaucastel, formed from Molasse seabed covered by diluvial alpine deposits. These pebbles called “galets roulés” play a big role, taking in heat during the day and releasing it slowly at night, which gives a good start to the vines in spring.Beaucastel samples
