The color is pale yellow, with peaches and honey on the nose. The palate is rounded and rich, full bodied with a balanced freshness and floral notes.
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.
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.
