Coudoulet de Beaucastel 1999 (review)

Cotes-Du-Rhone, France. 13.5%

Good vintage. Made by Beaucastel from the vineyard across the road from their Chateauneuf-du-Pape vineyard, supposedly in just the same way.

So I’m surprised that this is fairly straightforward. It’s nice, the obvious Mouvedre giving the house style, but certainly less weighty and concentrated than expected.

I was hoping for a bargain. But as that the first bottle was corked it turned out to be rather expensive 😦
