The tannins are beginning to soften in the 2015 Coudoulet and it is just hitting its stride.
Additional Wine Notes
Chateau de Beaucastel are one of the top Chateauneuf producers. The Coudoulet is a southern Rhone blend that ticks all the right boxes: fruit, spice and acidity whilst remaining soft and easy. It is usually sensible to allow a few years in bottle before approaching though as the tannins can be a little tough.
Chateauneuf-du-Pape has been dominated by Chateau de Beaucastel for as long as anyone can remember and there is good reason for it. They are consistent in their quality and their top wines are nothing short of exceptional.
2015 was a very good vintage in Rhone
