Chateau Beaucastel is regarded as one of the best producers in Chateauneuf du Pape, and maybe all of the Rhone Valley. While the Beaucastel CNDPs are usually in the $75-$100 range their “Coudoulet de Beaucastel” Cotes du Rhone, which is made from Beaucastel’s younger vines just 30 hectares from their flagship vineyards, is an extraordinary value.
This year the blend is 40% Grenache, 30% Mouvedre, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault. This wine will arrive Thursday, just in time for your Easter Weekend. Reserve yours today!
This is better than MANY Chateauneuf du Papes!

MySomm’s Tasting Notes: “This shows essences of it’s big brother with aromas of red berries & charcoal, black pepper, lavender, & licorice on the nose. On the palate, this is more of a medium-bodied wine as opposed to it’s brother’s massive texture. The flavors on the palate are of succulent red fruits coated in forest floor, teriyaki, fig, & herb-crusted truffle. Decant for at least an hour (6 hours wouldn’t hurt it) and enjoy.”
