  • 2005 Château de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet de Beaucastel – France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Côtes du Rhône (6/17/2009)
    Had this tonight with a simple dinner of grilled chicken, grilled vegetables, and salad. Simple wine for a simple dinner made for a great match. This is liquid licorice and crushed berries. Some dried fruit, herbs, and spice. Very nice freshness and medium body. Not an overly complex wine, but a very enjoyable and flavorful experience that’s drinking nicely right now with a youthful fruit exuberance. Can be held for a few years, but I personally think this is drinking absolutely perfectly right now.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
