CH BEAUCASTEL COUDOULET ROUGE 16
This is a complex southern French red from a great producer and a great year; the 2016 southern Rhone reds are rocking with intensity, complexity and ripeness. It's a superlative year no matter which critic you consult.
This wine is a blend of 30% Mourvedre, 30% Cinsault, 20% Grenache and 20% Syrah made from a vineyard just across the road from Chateauneuf-du-Pape. About 10,000 cases were made.
Snap it up for awesome drinking now, decanted and in your largest glass, or cellar it. A win-win.
