Chateau de Beaucastel Coudoulet 2011

Member Review by steve16046:

Suprisingly received 2 of these for Christmas from multiple people...which is good, so I can drink one now! Pours a rich violet color with deep red hues on the edges. Lots of dark berries, cassis and peppery spices on the nose. Starts off with a solid amount of dark berry jam. In the middle, lots of currants, spices, blackberry with some biscotti (reminds me of the biscotti bakery when you walk in). Finishes off similar to the middle, but more intensified. This is a full bodied Southern Rhone wine that leaves a moderate lingering on the palate. I enjoyed this wine now, but will lay the other one down for another 5 or so years. A moderate value here.

Wine Spectator ReviewRated 96 COLLECTIBLE of Wine Spectator 2008 Top 100Really dense and locked up now, this is packed with dark fig, currant and blackberry fruit shrouded by layers of tar, hot stone, bittersweet licorice and espresso. The long, dense finish has a great tug of iron buried within it. Best from 2011 through 2030.Wine Advocate ReviewRated 94+The 2005 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape is a wine that probably needs 7-10 years of bottle age. Possibly the most backward and closed Beaucastel made since the 1995, the wine has very high tannins, seems totally closed aromatically, but in the mouth is a weighty wine exhibiting a dense ruby/purple color and tight aromatics consisting of new saddle leather, porcini, meat juices, licorice, tar, and black fruits. The wine is full-bodied, powerful, very tannic, and structured in a dramatically masculine, ageworthy style. This is one for the younger generation or those with considerable patience. I can't see it being close to drinkable before 2014 and lasting up to 30 or more years.

The 2008 Beaucastel Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the few outstanding wines produced in this vintage. More evolved than Beaucastel's wines tend to be, it reveals a healthy dark plum/ruby color, notes of licorice, meat juices, smoked game, black curra... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

Vivid ruby. Enticing aromas of raspberry, dried flowers and spice cake. Sweet and penetrating, offering sappy flavors of red and dark berries, candied flowers and chewing tobacco. Combines depth and juiciness smoothly, finishing with gentle grip and persistent florality.

This red wine is incredibly rich with tremendous spice, licorice, blackberries and pepper on the palate. A full-bodied wine with velvet-textured tannins and incredible structure. A wine that's made for the cellar if you're patient but most people we know enjoy this regal red for its youthful profile.
