A superb vintage for this cuvee the 2010 Château de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet de Beaucastel Blanc is a blend of 30% Viognier 30% Marsanne 30% Bourboulenc and 10% Clairette that's aged 80% in stainless steel tank... A superb vintage for this cuvee the 2010 Château de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet de Beaucastel Blanc is a blend of 30% Viognier 30% Marsanne 30% Bourboulenc and 10% Clairette that's aged 80% in stainless steel tank and 20% in small barrels. Very light gold in color it exhibits a crisp bouquet that gains richness with air going from light citrus and mineral-driven to showing more peach flowers dried stone and honeysuckle over the evening. Beautifully focused and pure on the palate with juicy almost racy acidity good concentration and excellent length this overall elegant fresh white is superb now yet should also evolve and drink well for 2-4 years. - Jeb Dunnuck

The Beaucastel 2010 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet blanc may well be the best Coudoulet white I have ever tasted. I scored it very conservatively last year but out of bottle this wine (again a blend of 30% Viognier 30% Bourboulenc 20% Marsanne and the rest Clairette) is not dissimilar from drinking the Beaucastel Roussanne. This is a gorgeous wine with wet stones interwoven with apricot marmalade white peach honeysuckle and rose petals. It is an extraordinary Cotes du Rhone white and possibly the best white Cotes du Rhone I have ever tasted. It should drink nicely for 4-5 years. -Robert Parker

Ripe and creamy up front with butter-framed melon creamed peach and pear notes that are then offset by a stony edge on the fresh finish. Blossoms in the glass. Bourboulenc Viognier Marsanne and Clairette. Drink now... Ripe and creamy up front with butter-framed melon creamed peach and pear notes that are then offset by a stony edge on the fresh finish.

Pale green-tinged yellow. Fresh assertively perfumed aromas of orange pear and minerals with a sexy floral quality adding complexity. Bright and focused yet silky on the palate offering sappy citrus and orchard fruit... Pale green-tinged yellow. Fresh assertively perfumed aromas of orange pear and minerals with a sexy floral quality adding complexity. Bright and focused yet silky on the palate offering sappy citrus and orchard fruit flavors. Closes bright and nervy with very good persistence to the orange zest and jasmine nuances.
