For many wine lovers, Beaucastel means the best Chateauneuf-du-Pape in France. Coudoulet de Beaucastel is often considered the baby Beaucastel. This is due to the close proximity of the aforementioned vineyards and similar soil composites.
This is truly a Cotes-du-Rhone that drinks like a Chateauneuf-du-Pape with aromas of dark fruit, leather, and roasted herbs. Medium to full-bodied wine with ripe, soft tannins and good acid/ alcohol balance.
