Chateau de Beaucastel Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel Blanc 2011
Dunkles, konzentriertes Rubinrot, finessenreicher, intensiver Duft nach dunklen Beeren, schwarzen Kirschen, Himbeeren und Provencekräutern mit rauchigen Anklängen. Unverkennbar Beaucastel mit dem hier typischen «Goût de terroir», einem Duft nach feuchter Erde, Pfeffer, Tabak, gegrilltem Fleisch, Himbeere und viel Würze. Schmeckt kraftvoll, intensiv, ungemein fruchtbetont, mit samtigen, perfekt reifen Tanninen. Der Wein setzt bei aller Komplexität und Länge immer auch seinen Fokus auf Saftigkeit, Eleganz und pure Finesse.

Ripe, wild, lush berries that linger & mix with oak & black tea accents. Bright acidity. Since this is a mix, there is more acidity than a normal zin, so don't be shy to pair with heavier meals. If anything one might err on going with light pairings, and get put off by acid.
You are amazing Mr. Prisoner. You are that boyfriend or girlfriend all single people seek to meet. You are deep, complex, and spicy hot. After one date with you, most wine, especially in your price range, just pale in comparison. Blackberry, spice and without fault you are guaranteed to be love at first sight for anyone lucky enough to spend around $30 odd dollars to take you home.
Had it at Meritage. Loved it.
External Reviews for Chateau de Beaucastel Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel Blanc
The 2007 blends the lush berry flavors of Zinfandel, the power and concentration of Cabernet Sauvignon, the dark black fruit of Syrah, the intensity and structure of Petite Sirah, the flesh of Charbono, and a hint of Grenache - all combined for a decadent wine with great complexity. 50% Zinfandel 24% Cabernet Sauvignon 14% Syrah 9% Petite Sirah 2% Charbono 1% Grenache We continue to receive an overwhelming amount of inquiries about "The Prisoner". Not just the wine, but the image on the label. The image is inspired by an original etching depicting a prisoner in chains Dave Phinney received as a gift from his mother and father (Orin and Swift).
Killer deal! Free Shipping when you order a case of 6 Bottles! Excellent as a gift, or if you feel like spoiling yourself this holiday season make sure to get a 6 pack case of Orin Swift Prisoner.

Orin Swift s Proprietary Blend The Prisoner has become the stuff of legend for many of us in the industry. We can never get enough - it always sells out - and (most importantly) the juice in the bottle is fantastic year in and year out.
The Beaucastel 2011 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet Blanc, which comes from vineyards adjacent to Chateauneuf du Pape, is a difficult wine to find in the marketplace, as the red Coudoulet is far more abundant in quantity. That being said, the 2011 Coudoulet white is an equal part blend of Viognier, Bourboulenc and Marsanne and the balance of it 10% Clairette. Always showing lots of good freshness, purity, hints of apricot and white peaches, this wine is flowery and very well-made in 2011, which is a strong vintage for white wines.
A light whiff of brioche weaves around a core of plantain, macadamia nut and lemon zest flavors, followed by a honeysuckle hint that chimes in on the finish. Drink now.
