Another nose that remains somewhat tight with medicinal cherry, leather, and garrigue aromas framed with a little spice, and a little floral nuance. With a lovely combination of liquory, plump, rich fruit, and a bit a bit of bitterness this fills the mouth that drops off quickly on the backend this is a bit short, but the black berry fruit and plum fruit is just so pretty you can help but seeing this as a fun wine. 89pts

From .375 this wine is pretty intense- there's a TON of oak here that is completely absorbed by the fruit, which is incredibly dense and rich. The nose started with a sulphur blast, followed by that sweet oak vanilla thing that I can't stand. Once that blew off, it was all black raspberry. The palate is almost overwhelming now- all texture and robust fruit. excellent with steak. Good now with some air, great in 10-15 years.

A Proprietary Blend wine from Rhone in France. 2000 Beaucastel, Chateau Chateauneuf du Pape Hommage A Jacques Perrin Grand Cuvee 750ml


External Review

Blended in roughly equal proportions of Mourvèdre, Grenache, Syrah and 80-year-old Cinsault grapes. This wine is rich and concentrated, with aromas of dark fruits, ink and spice. Firm tannins suggest a bit of time in the cellar, but there is enough fruit present to enjoy this now.

The 2000 Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet is a luscious, richly fruity offering with considerable fat as well as texture. Revealing a dense purple color along with terrific aromatics of licorice and cassis, this full-bodied, low acid effort will no doubt be bottled earlier than usual to preserve its fruit and freshness. Although it will not be long-lived, it will provide delicious drinking for a decade.

Distinctive, traditional Rhône red that excites, with an interesting combination of mineral, wet earth, faded flower petals, black truffle and - surprisingly - red brick aromas. These decadent notes continue in the aftertaste. It's structured, and turns silky in the midpalate from good concentration of fruit. Best from 2003 through 2010.

Bright full red-ruby. Aromas of smoky red fruits and spice cake. Tightly wound and firm, but less exuberant and primary than the young 2000. A solid wine with somewhat tight tannins; today one senses the wine's acidity, even though it's no higher than usual for this bottling. A bit inscrutable at present.

Dense ruby. Sexy aromas of black raspberry, creme de cassis, underbrush and licorice. Supple and quite suave, with palate-coating dark berry flavors. Spicy and sweet on the finish, with the berry and licorice notes repeating. This fruit bomb will be delicious young.


External Review

Ripe but well focused, with a beam of fig and ganache running through the middle, while licorice, mulled spice and incense notes fill in the edges. A tarry hint frames the finish. Mourvèdre, Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. Drink now through 2011.
